Hilliard’s Professor Roundabout is back in the states following a European roundabout adventure across Poland, Czech Republic, and the Netherlands.
Watch as City of Hilliard Transportation & Mobility Director Letty Schamp recaps the trip she took earlier this month, paid for by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration.
Schamp was chosen to represent local governments across the United States in a Global Benchmarking Program designed to learn more about the implementation of turbo roundabouts in these European countries. Turbo roundabouts use road markings and raised lane-dividers to solve capacity and safety issues that often occur in standard multi-lane roundabouts. The goal of the study is for these findings to be applied and implemented in the U.S. in appropriate locations, in order to help reduce the number of fatalities, serious injuries, and property damage on our roadways.
