ENCINITAS -- A traffic plan headed to the City Council on Wednesday proposes stoplights, signals and roundabouts to relieve the congestion that clogs Rancho Santa Fe Road every work day.
"I've been a longtime proponent of getting Rancho Santa Fe Road fixed," Mayor James Bond said Monday. "It's broken right now."
The traffic study examines Rancho Santa Fe Road in the Olivenhain community and several other thoroughfares.
The study concludes that most roads can meet the demands future development will place upon them through 2030.
In addition to fixes for Rancho Santa Fe Road, the traffic plan calls for widening segments of Encinitas Boulevard. Freeway ramps also would require upgrades.
No action is scheduled for the meeting that will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday at 505 S. Vulcan Ave.

Traffic plan heads to Encinitas council
In addition to Rancho Santa Fe Road, the city is considering roundabout controls at freeway interchanges, the report states.
Some of the city's busiest roads should be widened, the report states. The roads include:
# El Camino Real, six lanes from Encinitas Boulevard to Manchester Avenue.
# Manchester Avenue, six lanes from El Camino Real to Interstate 5.
# Encinitas Boulevard, eight lanes from Interstate 5 to Saxony Road.
# Encinitas Boulevard, six lanes from Saxony Road to Balour Drive.
# Encinitas Boulevard, six lanes from Via Cantebria to El Camino Real.
# Encinitas Boulevard, six lanes from El Camino Real to Village Square.
# Olivenhain Road, six lanes from El Camino Real to Amargosa Street.
# Olivenhain Road, six lanes from Amargosa to Rancho Santa Fe Road.
# La Costa Avenue, four lanes from Interstate 5 to North Coast Highway 101.
The city in 2003 commissioned Santa Ana-based Austin-Fourst Associates Inc. to prepare the study. Many of the traffic counts it contains were taken that year. To date, the city has paid $132,154 for the document.
Does this city have roundabout fever or what?
