Based on the success of the Muirfield Drive/Brand Road roundabout in Dublin, Ohio, plans are underway to build three more of the innovative intersections. Since the opening of the roundabout nearly a year ago, only two traffic accidents have been reported—a significant decrease compared to the previous intersection, which averaged two to three accidents a month. By reducing speeds to 25 mph and eliminating right angle collisions, the modern roundabout reduces accidents. For more information, visit www.dublin.oh.us.
