The first roundabout on the Park Ave. Corridor in the Town of Breckenridge, CO is now open! The roundabout at 4 O'Clock Road and Park Avenue held its opening ceremony on June 30, 2017.

This is the first roundabout planned along a corridor of nine roundabouts on Park Avenue (SH 9). MTJ Roundabout Engineering worked with the Town of Breckenridge, CO and McDowell Engineering on the peer review for this project.

The first roundabout in Lafayette, CA is now open at Pleasant Hill and Olympic Blvd.!
MTJ provided capacity analysis and final horizontal design, signing, marking, and ped/bike facilitation design for this roundabout. High levels of design alternatives and communication were involved with the City’s Ped/Bike Commission to address design questions and reach consensus on pedestrian and bicycle mobility and safety. Consensus was attained through design alternative development and thorough explanation and discussion about relative benefits of various design treatments. Project partner was Omni-Means.
