Appendix A Page A-3 Roundabouts: An Informational Guide A.1 EXAMPLE PAVEMENT MARKINGS Exhibits A-1 through A-16 illustrate examples of markings for roundabouts with various geometric design and lane-use configurations from the 2009 Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (see Chapter 7 for reference). This series of exhibits is not an exhaustive set of examples of every possible roundabout config- uration. However, the examples show many complex lane-use arrangements and do a good job of illustrating the general principles for marking roundabouts as described in Chapter 7. Most importantly, the examples illustrate how drivers can choose the appropriate lane when entering a roundabout and not need to change lanes within the circulatory roadway before exiting in their desired direction.

Appendix A Page A-11 Roundabouts: An Informational Guide Exhibit A-10 Example Markings for a Double-Lane Roundabout with Consecutive Double Left Turns This example shows that in some situations with unusual lane assignment, it may be necessary to increase the number of lanes within the circulatory roadway for the sole purpose of achieving the goal of allowing drivers to choose the appro- priate lane on the approach and follow that lane to their desired exit.

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 672: Roundabouts: An Informational Guide – Second Edition explores the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of roundabouts. The report also addresses issues that may be useful in helping to explain the trade-offs associated with roundabouts.

This report updates the U.S. Federal Highway Administration’s Roundabouts: An Informational Guide, based on experience gained in the United States since that guide was published in 2000.

Errata

Equation 6-3 on page 6-58 incorrectly contains an addition sign (+) as an operator. The correct operator should be a subtraction sign (-).

Errata #2

Exhibit 5-23 on page 5-29 of NCHRP Report 672 contains an incorrect calculation of estimated injury crashes.

There is a summary document, Paths to Practice, available.
