A roundabout is a one-way circular intersection engineered to reduce congestion, save time, and maximize safety.  

Every roundabout relies on certain fundamental characteristics including:
  • Traffic traveling at a counterclockwise flow around a center island
  • Vehicles entering the roundabout are required to yield to both pedestrians and existing traffic
  • Curvature of the structure results in lower vehicle speeds within the roundabout
  • Vehicles exiting the roundabout do so by displaying a turn signal and veering toward desired exit
Pedestrians should cross at crosswalks only, and should never walk across the circulating lane to the center island.
