The city and county of Santa Barbara has invited the public to attend a community meeting next Wednesday to discuss a roundabout project. 

The Olive Mill/Coast Village Road Roundabout Project will include bicycle lanes and pedestrian crosswalks along the Olive Mill Road and San Ysidro intersections, and will coincide with rehabilitation roadway projects. 

The Olive Mill Road Project will be at the intersection of Coast Village Road and north Jameson Lane. The San Ysidro Road Project will be at San Ysidro Road at the intersection of north Jameson Lane. Both projects are adjacent to Highway 101. 

The county says these projects will enhance traffic operations and safety for motor vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians. 

Both will be funded through the Highway Safety Improvement Program and State Transportation Improvement Program. 

The meeting to discuss both will be Wednesday, Aug. 29, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Chase Palm Park Center. 

The center is located at 236 E. Cabrillo Blvd., Santa Barbara.
