Roundabouts continue to grow in popularity in the United States because they are easy to use and safer for drivers. But back in 2011 some vocal Goshen residents resisted the roundabout, and as it was a mayoral election year, the project died.
WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE the mayor, or any other city official, begin to gather together a group of community residents, including those opposed to roundabouts, to gauge if the traffic-easing structure should be built at College and South 15th Street in the coming years.
It’s just good common sense that the best technique to ease congestion and improve safety at that intersection be used. We think those who put their 2 cents in Monday night on the issue of roundabouts have shown us the way forward.
