City Examples

The purpose of this page is to provide a few helpful links to other cities that have successfully incorporated roundabouts into their infrastructure. Cities typically incorporate roundabouts into their city street infrastructure for several reasons:

1.Fewer injury crashes and fatalities (no “t-bone” or head-on crashes)

2.Improved pedestrian safety (low speeds, fewer lanes to cross, minimal delays, traffic from only one direction)

3.Less vehicle delay and pollution (no waiting at red lights, complete stops are not usually necessary)

Below are links to the specific city, and a map outlining their roundabouts.
