Roundabout education

The Utah DOT Traffic and Safety division produced an informational video on roundabouts. It showcases the benefits of roundabouts (especially the safety benefit) to a wide variety of audiences. Roundabouts are not the perfect solution at all intersections, however, in the right locations, roundabouts can be a very safe and efficient way to move not just motor vehicles but pedestrians and bicyclists, too.

Public meetings

MnDOT hosted a hybrid public meeting on April 21 to show updates on the proposed intersection safety improvements along Highway 53 in Eveleth. If you were unable to attend the meeting, please view a recording of the meeting below.
