The Roundabout

The rules for using a roundabout are simple. A video on how to use a roundabout can be viewed at http://www.dot.state.mn.us/roundabouts/   You will find the video on single-lane roundabouts near the top left of the page.

Approach

  • Reduce your speed
  • Watch for road signs
  • Watch for pedestrians and cyclists and be prepared to stop

Yield

  • Always yield to traffic in a roundabout
  • Wait for a safe gap in the traffic, remembering that those in the roundabout have the right of way

Enter

  • Enter the roundabout to your right
  • Continue counter clockwise until you reach your exit

Exit

  • Watch for pedestrians and cyclists

Safety tip: never stop in a roundabout unless traffic conditions require it.

Project Documents & Reports

Project Background

Hailey's 35-year-old Woodside Boulevard is one of the busiest streets in Hailey, second only to Main Street (SH-75). The large amount of activity comes from a variety of users – Woodside-area residents, business, commuters, students, bicyclists, pedestrians, recreationists and more.

The city and residents have recognized the importance of making this a safe transportation corridor. Improving Woodside Boulevard has been in the city's Capital Improvement Plan for many years, and it was identified as the number one priority for residential street improvements by citizens responding to a community wide survey completed in 2009.

In Fall 2010, the City of Hailey was awarded a $3.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to make improvements to Woodside Boulevard. This grant is funded through the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) II Discretionary Grant program. More than 1,000 grant applications were received by the U.S. DOT, and Hailey's award is one of 42 nationwide and one of only two in Idaho.

The goal of these improvements is to provide a safe corridor for all users of Woodside Boulevard, using design principles that consider motorists, public transit passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians.
