As I said somewhere else on this forum, I once imagined myself as a civil engineer, and some of that fascination with that field lives on inside me. Hence, this thread.

Roundabouts are pretty recent in my province. 10-12 years ago, you could easily drive a year without crossing one. Now they’re everywhere. But our engineers don’t really know what they’re doing. I’ve drove through Europe (even in the UK) and they know their shit with roundabouts.

Plenty have sprouted up here in MI these last 15 years. There's an underground one in a tunnel linking two of the Faroe Islands that's about to open.

We haven't got enough, but there's one at the center of town nobody knows how to navigate. You'd think it were as unusual as right-hand cars...

i still can't figure out the double roundabouts in England.
i think roundabouts are starting to pick up in popularity in the states.  There were a few recently put up in the metro areas outside of Portland and my friend driving up to it for the first time panicked and drove through the middle.

Is this real? The roundabout bridge doesn’t seem to make sense

It's real, but not a true roundabout when you look closely.  :D

A bridge designed to slow down traffic.
I think a speed sign is more cost effective  :)
