Roundabout Concept

The improvement concept at the intersection of Eden Ave, Grange Rd, and Wilson Rd is 2 roundabouts. Because of the offset nature of the intersection and the proximity to driveways, 1 roundabout does not work at this location. The benefits of this concept are;

  1. Reduced Vehicle Speeds
  2. Reduced vehicle and pedestrian conflict points.
  3. Reduced severity and frequency of most crash types.
  4. Improved pedestrian facility - wide shared use trails on both sides, shorter crossing distances, median refuge island, crossing only one direction at a time.
  5. Typically, less delay than traffic signals or all-way-stop intersections.

Thanks, Chad Millner, City Engineer
