This site is dedicated to free traffic flow through the design and use of roundabouts. Visit this site often to get the most recent news and information about the progress of roundabouts in the USA. There are currently around 5,000 modern roundabouts operating in the USA that were constructed since 1990. Hundreds more are constructed every year.
This roundabout site is provided to people interested in learning more about roundabouts: what they are, where they are currently located, how effective they are, and how they operate.
