Indianapolis to Get 6 New Round-a-Bouts

Indianapolis is addind six round-abouts thorughout the city. Round-a-bouts have become popular for alleviating congestion and trafiic in neighboring cities, towns and counties within the Metro Indianapolis area. The city of Carmel in Hancock County boasts the most round-a-bouts and Hendricks County has added several in the last few years. The six planned round-a-bouts will be at the following intersections:

  • German Church and 42nd Street
  • German Church and 46th Street
  • Spring Mill Road and 91st Street
  • Edgewood Avenue and McFarland Road
  • Edgewood Avenue and Gray Road
  • Five Points Road and Thompson Road 

I remember the first time I drove a round-about was in Cherry Hill, NJ. Back then, I was a bit intimidated and thought they were a crazy idea. Today, I like the simplicity of them, as well as the ease of travel.

I talk to many people who will do anything to avoid a round-a-bout. I'd love to hear your opinion about driving round-a-bouts. Love it, avoid it or deal with it?

In Naples...we have no roundabouts....have driven them and actually prefer them to lighted intersections. I am just weary about traffic accidents with an overabundance of snow birds from different areas

I love roundabouts. They're the latest craze. Just used to see them in New Orleans. Now they added one in my hometown in Mississippi.

I lived in Europe for a year. The roundabouts drove me crazy. They have roundabouts where we typically have stop signs.

I lived in Oregon for awhile and we had 36 round-a-bouts with local artwork placed in the median. It really made the traffic flow and the town a beautiful work of art. Now, I am in Naples, Florida and the round-a-bouts here are plain, take up a lot of space, and people still treat them as stop signs (not yield) which tends to muck the whole thing up.
