Mini roundabouts installed near Frontier Village

 

July 3, 2012

The first of the mini roundabouts, between Frontier Village and the Safeway gas station.

Two mini roundabouts on North Davies Rd. have been installed and motorists appear to be adjusting to them quickly.

The second of the mini roundabouts.

It has been observed that some large vehicles do not realize that the center island is designed to be traveled over.

A small apron has been installed outside of the island curbing to help make the movement of large vehicles over the island easier.

The Federal Highway Administration has a web site that provides some background on driving (Section 1) and the features of the mini roundabouts

You can find that information at: safety.fhwa.dot.gov/intersection/roundabouts/fhwasa10007/.

Please be patient as drivers get used to this change.
