Closest thing to 14th & Division that I could find…with a roundabout
Last night’s Division St. Initiative presentation included initial recommendations for 5 roundabouts along the corridor. I’ll have a longer piece on the idea and other feedback from the presentation later today. But, it’s apparent from some of the comments on TC Chamber’s Facebook page, that there is not a lot of experience with this proven traffic calming device.
We need to see it.
Here is a two-lane roundabout that looks very similar to 14th and Division St.
This is in the city of Bellingham, WA along Cordata Parkway. The city has two 2-lane roundabouts. (UPDATE: Just noticed that right next to one of their roundabouts is where their driver’s license examination office is located-perfect!)
Again, I’ll have more of an update later. In the meantime…a little simulation.
Initial responses? Do you have any experience using roundabouts?
