Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
What are the advantages of installing a modern roundabout?


ANSWER:
Modern roundabouts can have several advantages over conventional intersections when they are installed in the proper locations for the correct traffic volume ranges. When that is the case, roundabouts will operate more efficiently with less delay than signalized or stop controlled intersections and provided greater safety for motorists and pedestrians. In many cases such as this project, the roundabout design may reduce impacts to surrounding properties. Roundabouts can also be designed to incorporate aesthetically pleasing treatments in the splitter and circular islands.
