Toolbox Tuesdays Winter 2012:

February 14 (10:00 am – 1:00 pm)

Roundabouts – Planning and Engineering

Roundabouts are regular features of European roadway design, however they have often been seen as too disruptive for American cities, and especially so in the western states. However opinions are starting to change. There are numerous benefits to roundabouts including improved traffic flow, reduced collisions due to fewer conflict areas, and potentially lower maintenance costs. In addition roundabouts can improve bicycle mobility by reducing the need for a complete stop.

This Toolbox Tuesday will feature two well-known traffic engineers (including the current president of ITE, Rock Miller) as well as two public sector managers who have, or are currently guiding the adoption and implementation of modern roundabouts.
