Roundabouts

Verboort Roundabout
Roundabouts are a great sustainable alternative for intersections where two or more roads come together.

They are a loop-like system that allows traffic to continuously flow in and out of the intersection.

How are they sustainable?

  • No electric traffic signals needed: Signs, striping and the curved design directs traffic;

  • Improved air quality: Motorists don’t sit in one place idling while waiting for a light to change;

  • Improved gas mileage: Motorists yield through the roundabout vs. a constant stop-and-go movement like a stop sign controlled intersection.
Washington County has built roundabouts at the following locations:
