Why a roundabout?

The existing traffic signal at the Ames Street intersection does not meet current design standards. It would be difficult to design a signalized intersection at this location to meet these standards due to the skew at which Ames Street intersects Jackson Boulevard and the curve in Jackson Boulevard at this location.

For additional information, please review the Roundabout page.
