Roundabout Education

Roundabout imageRoundabouts have seen increased application across the United States as one of the Federal Highway Administration's nine proven safety countermeasures. It has been generally recognized that public acceptance and buy-in of roundabouts is essential to moving their use forward. Understanding what other states and locales have developed to facilitate roundabout education and outreach is crucial in refining MDT's approach. Consequently, the research presented in this report was undertaken to identify strategies to use in public meetings and other venues to promote roundabouts as a preferred approach to intersection control and as an effective safety countermeasure.
