The Golden Hill and Union Roundabout represents a major achievement in enhancing traffic flow and improving safety on the east side of Paso Robles. This modern roundabout design replaces the previous angled 4-way stop intersection, addressing congestion issues, and providing a safer and more efficient transportation network for residents, commuters, and visitors now and into the future. Construction was funded with $5.6million in Development Impact Fees and a $360,000 grant from the SLO County Council of Governments.
