Dear Randy Hollenbeck:
Thank you for your recent e-mail regarding roundabouts.
As you may be aware, this is a
For your information, at the state level, WisDOT has been considering roundabouts where they might be appropriate, as the safety and operational benefits of the modern roundabouts have been well documented (90 percent reduction in fatalities, 76 percent reduction in injury crashes, and 30-50 percent increase in capacity).
On the majority of our new projects involving modern roundabouts, there is generally some initial public skepticism. But WisDOT is confident that roundabouts provide safe and efficient intersections in many cases.
You can learn more about the benefits of roundabouts by checking out the subject on WisDOT’s website at:
