A resource page everyone should love
I had two completely different issues to write about when I woke up–storm-water infiltration or bicycling while pregnant. In due time; they will have to wait. Maybe I can combine them.
Instead, attention was diverted by the old roundabout topic. It just wont’ go away!
I receive questions daily about roundabouts. How do pedestrians cross? How does snow removal work? What do you put in the middle of them? It’s a good thing; we are seeking information. And, the answers are available.
Many resources have been provided in previous posts, but I see a need to have the best of those resources consolidated on one page.
I’ve done that with a link on the sidebar titled: Roundies in Michigan & Other RbT Resources
One key component that hasn’t previously been shared was a map of current Michigan Roundabouts. Surprisingly, there wasn’t a map of all the roundabouts in Michigan anywhere online. Below is the beginnings of such a map.
Please help. If you have driven a roundabout or just know of a roundie in Michigan, please leave a comment with the location. Currently, it’s populated by over 2 dozen, but I’m certain that there are plenty more. Also, share this short link (http://bit.ly/bpQTnh) with friends looking for more information on roundabouts. If they can’t find the answers to their questions here, let me know as it is by no means a comprehensive list of resources, but it’s probably more than most people desire.
Current roundabouts or those under construction
UPDATED: Thanks to a suggestion by a reader, I’m providing the original video of my latest roundie video, Brighton’s series of 3 roundabouts taken last week. Follow the link for the 3X sped up version
