    I can’t see that causing accidents at all.

    This is going to be terrible. I have driven multi-lane roundabouts in England and they are confusing and can cause bad accidents. City Hall is going to have to learn the hard way about that as they didn’t want to hear about the problems Lincolnites have at the less confusing roundabouts on Sheridan Boulevard. I am glad I don’t live up Northwest. I pity those who do.

    I have a better idea what to do with the $11 million, fix the pot holes in the rest of the town!!

    Suck it up, Lincoln. If you weren’t continually trying to act like a country hamlet you wouldn’t have lost the State Fair, State Volleyball, and wrestling. Im tired of having to continually adapt to living in 1975. No wonder no company of any marketable size wants to be located here.

    My children attended Goodrich. I can only begin to imagine what a nightmare the underground pedestrian situation will prove to be. NOT a safe environment for middle school students.

    I’m surprised this YouTube clip didn’t show the cars crashing into each other.

    I think they should setup loudspeakers playing the benny hill theme song over the intersection

    Please just give us turn lanes and timed lights. Please.

    I relocated here from a large, large city and I fail to see why acting like a ‘country hamlet’ is a bad thing. If moving a little slower and having traffic lights and controlled intersections is ‘1975’ then count me in.

    Most of the companies of any size have moved to other countries to get away from all the taxation and regularly mandates
    that the government forces on them. The only thing that is stuck in 1975 is the wages of the working class in Lincoln. It’s just government shoved down our throats.

    Please – turn lanes and signals!!!!! After living in much larger cities, and dealing with Lincoln traffic for 13 years, I can just seem multiple car accidents closing the WHOLE thing at 7:30 on a Monday morning. People in the U.S. don’t know how to use a single lane roundabout – a multiple lane one is just one big accident waiting to happen.

    It may cost less money to build up front – but in the long run – by the time you get all the pedestrian walkways done — it will cost MORE!

    And exactly how many of you proclaiming Armageddon if this roundabout gets built are trained in traffic engineering/design? I’ll bet you think that because you’ve flown on an airplane you can fly it better than the pilots, too.

    I think the traffic engineers forgot to factor in the “Lincoln driver” part of the equation. How will anyone be able to text and drive at the same time through that roundabout???

    The police chief thinks they’re a good idea and has actual facts to back it up. http://lpd304.blogspot.com/2011/04/roundabout-bout.html

    Lincoln traffic at it’s worst is nothing like the cities I have lived in. We don’t even come close to the volume in Omaha. This roundabout is simple and will slow down traffic and keep it flowing.

    Look at the big picture. What is going to happen from 14 th to 27 th on superior? There will be no traffic break to let us out from our neighborhoods and school if we want to turn west. I can just see it now, U-turns at 27 th and superior. Great plaining! I can just see it now, Just take fairfield to 14th and then go north then west. By the way fairfield is a very small almost one lane road went both sides are parked full. Lets take care of what we have .
