Roundabout without a left turn will confound Breckenridge

To the Colorado Department of Transportation and the town of Breckenridge: Please reconsider the alignment of the proposed roundabout in Breckenridge at Main Street and North Park Avenue.

Eliminating the ability to turn left from Main Street onto North Park Avenue will make it difficult and inconvenient to access businesses on the north end of the Parkway Shopping Center such as Great Adventure Sports and Loaf N Jug and community facilities such as the Summit County Justice Center and the Breckenridge Recreation Center.

Eliminating this left-hand turn will mean residents and visitors on the east side of Main Street will have a long and circuitous route to access these businesses and facilities.

It will also likely result in more traffic cutting through the City Market parking lot, increasing risk to pedestrians and shoppers.
