In an effort to improve public safety in unincorporated Jefferson County, Highways and Transportation constructed three roundabouts in place of signalized intersections.
These roundabouts were built at the following locations:
A roundabout is a circular intersection designed to slow traffic while lowering delays. Roundabouts are designed for both large and small vehicles. There are no traffic signals. The roundabout features a central island around which traffic circulates. Roundabouts can be either single-lane or double-lane.
Statistics gathered in the United States show that roundabouts can reduce fatal and injury accidents by as much as 76 percent. Roundabouts encourage slower speeds and calmer traffic. Accidents tend to be less severe with fewer injuries.
Unlike a signalized intersection, roundabouts don't force drivers to stop when there is no traffic. Motorists are only required to stop when there is conflicting traffic or pedestrians. Motorists yield, rather than stop. A higher traffic flow quickens your commute.
See more information about roundabouts in the Jefferson County roundabout brochure .
