Downtown Montgomery Roundabout Information

Purpose

The purpose of the roundabout project is to improve traffic patterns at the existing interchange of US 22 (Montgomery Road) and SR 126 (Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway) and along US 22 north of the interchange.

The City of Montgomery plans to redevelop the currently vacant area with office, retail, hotel, and residential uses that will require multiple access points along US 22 north of the interchange. The project will extend downtown Montgomery to the new intersection by providing a pedestrian-friendly environment.

The Rules of Roundabouts

When driving a roundabout:

  • Slow down when approaching a roundabout.
  • Observe signs and pavement markings.
  • Choose your lane before entering the roundabout based on the direction you would like to travel (just like a traditional signalized intersection).
  • Yield to traffic in ALL lanes to your left before entering.
  • Stay in your lane until your exit. Do not change lanes in the roundabout. Do not stop in the roundabout.

Here are a couple of other things to keep in mind when driving in a multi-lane roundabout.

  • You want to be in the right lane to turn right or go straight.
  • You want to be in the left lane if you’re going to go straight, turn left, or do a U-turn.

To avoid a sideswipe collision, it is imperative that if you are in the right lane (outside lane) of the roundabout that you go right or straight (not left or around the roundabout) as you will conflict with the inside lane.  You should choose the appropriate lane before entering the roundabout and proceed through the roundabout in the direction you have chosen.

It is important to remember large vehicles need more space in a roundabout.  Avoid driving next to or passing large vehicles.  Sometimes large trucks need both lanes to turn in the circle. They may even need to truck aprons to make a tight turn.
