We Are the Champions: Roundabouts of the Future

Corridors of roundabouts are becoming more commonplace, but communities of roundabouts are still rare. This is a showcase to inspire a vision of what can be. Size and cost are becoming frequent sticking points for building roundabouts. Shrinking the center island or metering an approach can reduce the impact of potential roundabouts and may make all the difference in the budget and adjacent property owner support. Roundabouts are currently in the early adopter phase for most agencies. Champions have the potential to get agencies and communities past this tipping point.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand how roundabouts can transform the safety, health, and economic vitality of a community.
  • Explain potential success of candidate locations for a roundabout diet.
  • Identify the benefits a roundabout champion brings to the table and to build value to the profession by becoming a champion that changes the game
