Lincoln County Roundabout

An intersection in Lincoln County was experiencing major delays due to the four way stop. During the peak hours of the morning and the evening, there were approximately 1,300 cars moving through the intersection. The four-way stop was known for being backed up for a half mile during the busy times.

Lincoln County teamed up with Clark Engineering to provide a solution to convoluted intersection. The county has had problems with stoplights in the past, so they decided a roundabout was the best solution. Clark Engineering was responsible from start to finish. Clark did a topographic survey, the design, and placed it for bid.

The roundabout is the first on in the Lincoln county district. The roundabout will move traffic through the intersection faster, will be safer for those moving through it, and will be cost beneficial to the county. Mike Poppens, the Lincoln County Commissioner states, “This is the way of the future. I do believe in traffic flow, and if this is successful you could see more of these in and out of the metro area.”
