Hamilton Rd. & Parc Dr.
MTJ was retained to provide operational analysis, horizontal design, and signing and marking recommendations for
this roundabout project in Gahanna, Ohio, located next to Northeast School.
MTJ’s Review/Design Optimization Process includes:
- Traffic Planning and Operational Analysis
- Alternative Concept Development
- Preliminary/Final Design
MTJ conducted a traffic planning level review of the system of the existing context and intersections along Hamilton Road.
MTJ then developed a “right-sized” roundabout that accounts for design vehicles and avoids unnecessary realignments that do not add safety or operational value.
This resulted in a context-appropriate design that minimized adverse impacts (ROW, environmental) and maximized community benefits while adhering to all roadway and roundabout-specific safety design principles. Geometric elements were designed to achieve accessibility objectives, while maintaining essential design elements that promote safety for all modes – vehicular and pedestrian.
