Did you know that the State of Minnesota is home to more than 200 roundabouts? As all residents know, four of those roundabouts call Richfield home, with three more being added at the conclusion of the Lyndale Avenue Reconstruction Project.
The Richfield City Council declared September 2019 to be Roundabout Education, Awareness and Safety Month in the city. So, we thought it would be a good time to dive deep into the rationale behind Richfield’s roundabouts.
For the thirty-eighth episode of the That’s Rich(field) podcast we sit down transportation engineer Jack Broz to discuss why some of the city’s intersections have incorporated roundabouts to enhance pedestrian safety and more effectively move traffic from Point A to Point B.
