More Roundabouts Coming
I remember the first time I came up on a roundabout. It was in my hometown of Kenosha, WI; actually it was the municipality just to the South called Pleasant Prairie near my older sister Debbie's house. I had no idea what it was or what I was supposed to do. Since then there have been several installed in our area. To be honest, I wasn't thrilled initially but now having been using the 2 on Sprinkle Rd and I 94, I think there should be more.
Well guess what? I'm getting my wish. The question is: Will they they be around here? In an article on wnem.com, The Michigan Department Of Transportation issued a statement verifying that they are looking at more roundabout locations for intersections with a high volume of traffic. I was amazed that there are only 43 roundabouts statewide and we have, what, 3 in Kalamazoo County. Sprinkle & 94, Milham & 12th St and Gull West of Riverview. Am I missing any? And more importantly, where do you think the next one should go? Get more of the story by clicking HERE.
