Essex Dr. & Beacon Pointe Dr.
Hoffman Estates, IL
MTJ Engineering provided Roundabout Design, and Review services to the Village of Hoffman Estates for this re-constructed intersection to accommodate increased traffic from proposed new development.
This review evaluated the geometries related to safety, operations, sight distance envelopes, and pedestrian crossings.
The primary re-design effort was aimed at accommodating a WB-50 design vehicle. The occurrence of this design vehicle is low. However, providing sufficient room for the truck movement is important to allow for delivery trucks, and moving vans without getting ‘hung-up’ in the roundabout.
The revised geometry will provide for ease of movements for the WB-50, school buses, garbage trucks, and construction equipment deliveries.
