Traffic Advisory

Restriping at the Glenwood Drive/ SR91 (Darrow) Roundabout

On Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018, the Glenwood Drive/ Darrow Road roundabout will be restriped.  The purpose of the restriping is to have the roundabout function as a single lane roundabout with the following exception:  northbound and southbound traffic will have a dedicated right turn lane that must turn right after YIELDING to circulating traffic in the roundabout.   Pavement markings and delineators will be used to restrict traffic from the curb lane from circulating the roundabout.

The straight/left turn movement from the northbound/southbound directions will occur from the inside lane and must also YIELD to traffic circulating in the roundabout prior to entering the roundabout.   The eastbound Glenwood leg of the roundabout will be restriped to remove the right turn lane and will function as a one lane approach similar to the existing westbound Glenwood leg of the intersection.  No changes to the westbound leg of the intersection will occur other than a more pronounced YIELD line being added which will match new Yield line bars being placed on all legs of the roundabout entry.

PLEASE YIELD TO TRAFFIC ALREADY IN THE ROUNDABOUT.

Remember; a Yield sign calls on the driver to do the following: SLOW DOWN, defer to oncoming or intersection traffic, stop when necessary.  Proceed when safe, and remain aware of circulating traffic and pedestrians.

 The State Route 91/Glenwood roundabout is now fully open.
 

Here are a few key things to remember about driving roundabouts:

-Slow down 
Roundabout ahead, 15 MPH

-Choose a lane 
Right lane if turning right, left lane if turning left.

-Yield to drivers in the roundabout
Look left for traffic already in the roundabout.  That means you may need to stop prior to entering the roundabout!!

-Stay in your lane; do not change lanes
Pick a lane prior to entering the roundabout.  Right lane if turning right, left lane if turning left. 

-Do not stop in the roundabout
The car in the roundabout has the right of way.  That means once you have yielded and successfully entered the roundabout you have the right of way to go around.

-Avoid driving next to oversized vehicles
The roundabout is designed for oversized vehicles however, it is best to give them room and not enter with a semi-truck or ride next to it.

-Proceed to your exit
Turn signals should be used. A Right turn signal lets the driver approaching the roundabout know you are exiting, which allows them to enter.
