Connecticut DOT earns national recognition for roundabout conversion

Rotaries—or large, high-speed traffic circles—are common in Northeastern states and are scattered throughout the U.S. In light of their poor performance and safety record, however, some transportation agencies are ditching rotaries in favor of smaller modern roundabouts. The Connecticut DOT chose several sites to test these conversions, and FHWA recognized one of those projects for its improved safety success.
