What Is A Roundabout?

Roundabout A roundabout is a one-way circular intersection that reduces traffic congestion, while maximizing safety for all road users. Roswell's first roundabout (in photo to right)—a one-lane roundabout—was completed in 2012 at Grimes Bridge Road and Norcross Street/Warsaw Road and has been very successful.

The Houze/Hembree Roundabout, which is being constructed by Georgia Department of Transportation, will be the first two-lane roundabout on a state road.

Roundabouts are new for many drivers, but following some basic steps will help you safely navigate them.
