This case study is probably the most aggressive use of roundabouts that the City has pursued to date. Figure 1 illustrates this case study, which will consist of three consecutive roundabouts. This project is expected to begin construction in 2007 and be complete by 2009. Unique features of this proposed project are: • • • High volume partial cloverleaf interchange with roundabouts at the exit ramp terminals Ramp terminal roundabouts will have three lane entries on most approaches High volume roundabout (with two three lane entries) at an adjacent intersection Since the inception of the project, the City of Dublin had wanted to explore the use of roundabouts at the ramp terminal intersections.

L. com Abstract An explosion of multi-lane roundabout projects has recently occurred in Central Ohio. This paper discusses four transportation improvement studies for which multiple multi-lane roundabouts were chosen as the preferred solution.

Introduction In recent years, the benefits of roundabouts have clearly been recognized by many Transportation engineering and urban planning leaders in the Untied States. The benefits of vastly improved traffic safety and aesthetics are relatively easy to describe and illustrate; but it is often less obvious that roundabout result in less traffic delay and fewer stops (resulting in fewer vehicle emissions) and improved access management over traditional traffic signal installations. Governmental agencies and the public have often been tentative to implement multi-lane roundabouts (roundabouts with more than one circulating lane) because of the perceived confusion and complexity of driving them.
