Traffic Circle Construction: Shawan @ Worthington/Greenspring...

Traffic Circle Construction: Shawan @ Worthington/Greenspring...

...has begun.   They have put up the sediment barriers, done some initial clearing, and brought in loads of 'rip-rap', so it looks like more serious effort in re-working this intersection as a round-a-bout has begun.

FYI...

The roundabout is complete at Tufton/Worthington.  I typically don't ride through that area, but it looks like it will be a helluva lot easier to negotiate that interection on 2 wheels than it was previously.

I have biked through the new circle several times since its completion, and it works very well. The intersection is definitely safer and much more easily navigated, especially when turning left off of Tufton.

Use caution when making a left from Tufton onto Greenspring at the new roundabout.  Some cars coming into the circle (from your right) on Eastbound Worthington have sped thru as if they had the right of way, instead of yielding to traffic already in the circle.  I've seen this on my bike and in my car as well.  Maybe the yield instructions are not clear or the drivers are unaccustomed to roundabouts.  Better safe than sorry.

Good point.  Thanks.
Wait - You mean you're expecting motorists to drive safely and lawfully...even when interacting with cyclists?!?  Well, I hope they get educated.  Trying to make that turn previously during a busy time of day was not good.   We'll see how this goes.
