FLORIDA DOT Roundabouts-Inventory

INDIANA DOT, Roundabouts Are Coming!                      http://www.journalgazette.net/article/20120527/EDIT10/305279954/1150/EDIT10T   The state has about 100 roundabouts now, according to Toni Mayo, spokeswoman for the Fort Wayne district of the Indiana Department of Transportation, but the figure is expected to increase by 40 percent over the next decade.

PennDOT has built 17 roundabouts across the state in the last dozen years. Another three are under construction, and 20 more are being designed, PennDOT roundabout coordinator Matt Bucher said.                                                                                                                                            Slate Magazine: Don’t Be So Square, by Tom Vanderbilt

With MPO Board comment and seeking to priority fund a US41 “multimodal” corridor in Sarasota for better mobility for all users, more safe, with economic revitalization, speakers representing Sarasota area institutions and organizations make their case to the 15 member Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization. The MPO board then voted to adopt the priority list which funds US41 corridor intersections at Orange, Main, MLK, and Myrtle to connect with previously fund intersections at 14th, 10th, Fruitville, and Gulfstream for, when complete, eight modern roundabouts-in-series as a multimodal federal highway.

With University Parkway expected to be submitted next year, note Manatee Commissioner Joe McClash suggesting a modern roundabout just north on US41 at the USF Sarasota campus. That location with University Parkway makes 10 modern roundabouts-in-series.
