Webinar Description:

The webinar will include an overview in the current and recent innovations in modern roundabout design and construction in various locations including New England, Ohio and elsewhere. Webinar participants will be able to recognize innovations in roundabout design and construction, be able to recognize these features when designing and reviewing roundabouts and allow them to recall these features for future designs. In addition, with an overview of roundabouts in Carmel, the undisputed municipal leader in roundabout innovations, participants will be able to recognize, recall and consider these innovations in future roundabout studies and designs. Roundabout construction innovations will be reviewed where construction staging innovations will be summarized.

The webinar keynote presenter will be Mayor Brainard of Carmel, Indiana. Mayor Brainard is by far the most outstanding local government champion of modern roundabouts in the United States, having guided his city of Carmel, Indiana, to undisputed leadership in density of modern roundabouts. Under Mayor Brainard’s leadership, Carmel has constructed 133 modern roundabouts for a mid-sized city population of 104,918 with more to come to ultimately eliminate almost all signalized intersections in Carmel. The Mayor will speak to the benefits of roundabouts to the residents and businesses of Carmel.

Michael Wallwork will discuss innovation in modern roundabouts, drawing on case studies such as: LaJolla Boulevard, California; Prairie Stark, Kansas; Farmington, New Mexico, and US 41 in Sarasota, Florida.
