20th Ave. & Benton St.

Edgewater, CO


To address multi-modal safety, mobility, and vehicular performance, the city of Edgewater retained MTJ to evaluate the feasibility of a compact, mini-style roundabout at this commercial, highly constrained intersection.


Alternative concepts addressed these key issues:

  • Minimize/avoid undesirable ROW impacts to surrounding properties
  • Ensure compatibility with existing and/or proposed roadway cross sections, to include pedestrian and bike design features – cycle track and on-street bike facilities
  • Accommodate necessary design vehicles:
  • Large trucks/freight
  • Transit and school buses
  • Emergency response/fire trucks

Three alternatives were developed to evaluate optimal size/shape and fit with acceptable impacts. The resulting optimal design was a non-circular 105’ x 88’ ICD compact style roundabout. The compact style design allows the central island to retain landscape features that will promote visual conspicuity for this application.


  • Minimized undesirable ROW impacts to surrounding properties
  • Compatible with existing roadway cross sections, providing optimal pedestrian/bicycle accommodations
  • Accommodated large trucks, transit/school buses, emergency response vehicles
  • Non-circular compact style roundabout
