With the realization of the increased efficiency and safety of modern roundabouts, information can readily be found about modern roundabouts on the internet and at real life intersections. Information available for public users can vary from what is a modern roundabout to how to navigate a modern roundabout.
Basic information and resources on why Crow Wing County and other local and regional road authorities are implementing modern roundabouts on the public highway system is now available.
