What is the status of the roundabout/construction by Superfoods? When we were there last year they were working on it. Have they made a safer place to cross as a pedestrian from timeshares to Superfoods? We will be going in February.

If driving be very cautious. Would be foolish to cross the road there by foot. Take a cab both ways.

Last year the traffic circle was much better than the old light. I usually motored right through.

Be very alert when approaching any intersection down there. Their rotaries (roundabouts!) are not too obvious. Enough so that I almost drove right over one a couple years ago :shock: . AND, when backing up, we noticed lots of tire skid marks just in front of the rotary :!: ! Looked like plenty other folks did the same thing.

And may I add....when entering a roundabout please remember...yield means yield ( have had two episodes in the same day at the airport roundabout where cars zoom into the rounbabout right in front of a car already in the roundabout). Insurance may not pay if you are at fault! Please use caution and follow the rules!

It's pretty much done and so easy to get through via car but alot of cars pass thru it and we saw a 3 car accident there a couple of days ago. Be very alert...

Personally, I would not want to cross it in the pedestrian crosswalk. If you do, be careful.
