TRB Webinar: Turbo-charged – Turbo roundabout advancements January 29, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

What’s the difference between a traditional roundabout and a turbo roundabout? TRB is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:30 ET to answer this question. A turbo roundabout has the same operating characteristics as modern roundabouts but utilizes different geometrics to address the conflicts associated with the common crash types in multilane roundabouts. This webinar will discuss international experiences with turbo roundabouts and identify key considerations for U.S. implementation. The content is based on a technical summary by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Operational Effects of Geometrics and Geometric Design.
