CRCOG is conducting a Roundabout Feasibility Study throughout the Capitol Region.
- At CRCOG, we seek to improve intersection traffic safety across our region. As part of this effort, we’ve partnered with Connecticut’s Department of Transportation (CTDOT), and the firm VHB, to study the potential safety benefits of converting existing intersections to single-lane modern roundabouts on our roads in the CRCOG region. We’re conducting a screening study of over 8,000 intersections on state and local roads in the CRCOG region.
Benefits of a Modern Roundabout:
- At intersections deemed suitable, the conversion of either stop-controlled or signalized intersection to modern roundabouts has the potential to significantly reduce fatal and serious injury crashes. In addition to creating a safer environment for vehicle travel, modern roundabouts are also designed to improve safety for all users, including bikes and pedestrians.
Final Report - Expected Spring 2024
