This Sat. there will be a better block party on Bluebonnet Cir.  I'm not sure what changes they want to make to the circle, but looks like it will be fun.

Use caution at Bluebonnet Cir. as they reversed the yield signs at University on both sides of the circle Monday and people aren't used to it yet, resulting in several accidents.

I drove through the circle today and I noticed the traffic changes.  The graphics they are using on the signs to indicate the lanes going around the circle are a little interesting.

Maybe this will help spur on some of the Bluebonnet Circle Urban Village plans

Sounds like there's a chance this could come to life.

TPW plans to continue two lanes. Our question: are these plans meant to reinforce complete streets & walkability or just to support a major thoroughfare? TPW will also provide a single lane option. We have a complete streets vision for a safe space for walking, bikes & cars.

Hopefully something awesome happens from this and things start to progress. Bluebonnet Circle has long been in need of a face lift. I hope the changes make it a place to gather and linger as they said on twitter. As it stands right now there is no draw or appeal to want to linger there. The circle needs a good coffee shop and a few more distinct businesses. Not some of the random places that are there now.

More seating, shading in the area and possibly a water feature would be appreciated.
