Geometric Design of Roundabouts
This course presents a summary of the geometric design process for modern roundabouts. Roundabouts are a common form of intersection control used throughout the world and increasingly in the United States. The information supplied in this course and is based on established and emerging U.S. practices and recent research. Selection and design of a roundabout, as with any intersection treatment, requires the balancing of competing objectives. These range from transportation-oriented objectives like safety, operational performance, and accessibility for all users to other factors such as economics, land use, aesthetics, and environmental aspects. Sufficient flexibility is provided to encourage independent designs and techniques tailored to particular situations while emphasizing performance-based evaluation of those designs.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty-five (25) questions to earn 5 PDH credit.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- familiarity with the general design guidelines for modern roundabouts;
- in-depth understanding of the principles to be considered when selecting and designing roundabouts.
