The main problem, according to the chief, are drivers southbound on Main Street who want to go east on Rt. 18. Instead of going to the right and around the circle, drivers are turning left, crossing the double yellow line into the wrong way on the roundabout.

A roundabout is a circular intersection in which road traffic is slowed and flows almost continuously in one direction around a central island to several exits onto the various intersecting roads, according to the Web site RoundaboutsUSA.com
Entering traffic must always yield to traffic already in the circle.

There are currently around 3,500 roundabouts operating in the United States that were constructed since 1990. In Wood County, the only other roundabout is on the Owens Community College campus. They’re becoming very popular in the Franklin and Delaware counties area.
