Overview

During the past 20 years roundabouts have received increasing attention and been accepted as an intersection control device by both the public and transportation professionals. There are an increasing number being implemented on local roads. Are there opportunities we are missing on the State Highway System? This session is intended to provide a forum to discuss potential applications on Florida's State Highway System. We are asking the participants to please think about your area and propose a location for discussion where a roundabout may have the potential to improve traffic operations, reduce congestion, and decrease the number of injury and serious crashes. Through this interactive session, attendees will apply some basic principles about roundabouts to find potential locations where they could improve safety and mobility on the State Highway System, share personal insights and explore potential responses by the transportation agencies. This seminar would be of interest to any planner dealing with transportation or urban design issues.
