Peninsula: Council approves funds for traffic roundabout

Tuesday night, the Belmont City Council approved an application for $500,000 of Transportation Fund for Clean Air funds to build a “roundabout” for traffic control at Ralston Avenue and South Road.

By slowing traffic instead of halting it, a roundabout will speed up traffic flow, cut down on congestion and reduce vehicle emissions from idling cars.

The total project is expected to cost $650,000 and the grant would require the project to be awarded during 2008. City staff is working on conceptual designs for the roundabout.

DALY CITY

E-waste event collects truckloads of trash

The electronic-waste event in Daly City last weekend resulted in at least five 45-foot trailers full of old cell phones, computers, batteries and televisions, among other objects, city staff reported.

The previous electronic-waste event held in the city last February saw 100 tons of waste carted out.

Residents were encouraged to bring their electronic items to City Hall last Saturday and Sunday to help minimize the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and along roadsides.
