Modern Roundabouts: What? Why? How? 


The ASCE Capital Branch still wants to serve our members! Register today for our first ONLINE Luncheon Event!

Tuesday, May 26th, 12pm - 1pm, using GoToMeeting


Not all circular intersections are roundabouts!  This presentation is designed to discuss what a modern roundabout is (and what it is not), why modern roundabouts are being planned, designed and constructed at record rates across the U.S., look at how roundabouts can best be utilized to meet various transportations challenges more efficiently and effectively than other intersection controls, and look at some specific design parameters like location, size, bicycle and pedestrian accommodation and more.  The speaker will also walk you through some project examples as well.
