The round-about being constructed for the NW Hill Road Project is the first traffic circle in McMinnville. From a planning perspective, I am a fan of these traffic regulators because they are a natural way to slow down traffic while also allowing traffic to flow. From an environmental perspective, they are environmentally friendly as they do not use electricity (compared to traffic signals). According to the United States Department of Transportation, traffic circles are safer and more efficient compared to signals and four way stop signs.

We have a round-about in Medford and it seems to work very well! It is about 6 to 8 years old and it has experienced very few accidents and it does allow the flow of traffic to move quite rapidly. My only complaint is the city has placed approximately 40 signs around the feature which really detracts from the function.
