Roundabout Provides Intersection Safety
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) selected Stanley Consultants for the design, preparation of construction plans and to provide post design services for a Lake Worth, Florida roundabout project.
The busy intersection of SR 802/Lake Worth Road and "A" Street in Lake Worth, Florida, was a source of frustration to drivers. Drivers on the main thoroughfare often were forced to wait at a red light when there was no traffic passing on the cross street. The solution was a roundabout that makes the intersection work continuously so that there is much less time spent waiting on traffic.
The Lake Worth Roundabout was Florida's first roundabout on a state road constructed according to FDOT guidelines.
