Bonnie Adams (right) with Travel with Care and Rachel Schaffner, project coordinator for Fayetteville’s Sustainability Department, paint the interior of a new mini-roundabout Thursday at Spring Street and School Avenue. The mini-roundabout is a pilot project to exemplify the concept of tactical urbanism. The project is similar to the temporary crosswalk in front of the Walton Arts Center’s Nadine Baum Studios.
