The Ohio Department of Transportation has started the process of installing a roundabout at the intersection of State Route 47 and State Route 235 in Logan County.
This is causing road closures and impacting traffic in that area.
Motorists are encouraged to adhere to the signage set out by the Ohio Department of Transportation.
ODOT studied the intersection and have decided to construct the roundabout.
Roundabouts are designed to be safer and more efficient than a traditional intersection.
Studies show roundabouts prevent high angle crashes, such as “T-bone” and left turn angle crashes.
Up to 88% of injury crashes and 68% of all crashes can be prevented by converting high-speed intersections to roundabouts.
