Lincoln County Roundabout
An intersection in Lincoln County was experiencing major delays due to the four way stop. During the peak hours of the morning and the evening, approximately 1,300 cars moved through the intersection. The four-way stop was known for being backed up for a half mile during the busy times.
Lincoln County teamed up with Clark Engineering now IMEG to provide a solution to convoluted intersection. The county has had problems with stoplights in the past, so they decided a roundabout was the best solution. Engineers were responsible from start to finish, providing a topographic survey and design and placing it for bid.
The roundabout moves traffic through the intersection faster, is safer for those moving through it, and was cost-beneficial to the county.
