Are Those Five Albany Area Roundabouts Annoying To You?
Over the last few years, there have been these changes to many Albany area intersections called roundabouts. In some other states, especially New England, they have rotaries. I believe they're the same thing, just a different name. The roundabouts are supposed to keep traffic flowing a little more smoothly than traffic signals, and help cause fewer accidents.
Here's my list of where the roundabouts are:
1) Latham Circle
traffic circle roundabout of the area.
This roundabout is a fairly small one.
3) Fuller Road Near SUNY Albany
Get ready. There's one more roundabout coming just north of this one.
4) Rotterdam roundabout
I didn't think this intersection was too bad with the traffic lights.
5) Valatie Roundabout
I think it makes this small town seem a little bit bigger.
Generally, I don't mind them. It just took a little getting used to. How do feel about the roundabouts?
