Havens Rd. & Reynoldsburg-New Albany Rd.
Franklin County, OH
MTJ provided a peer review for this challenging high- speed rural application roundabout. The peer review involved review of initial concept designs by others, followed by development of corrective and optimized geometrics that reduced impacts, improved safety, and access to adjacent parcels.
The peer review 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.
The resulting 95% horizontal geometric design recommendations are predicated on application of traffic/highway engineering and roundabout-specific design principles and criteria working together to optimize safety for this application.
Key project outcomes include:
- Address driver expectancy for high-speed context
- Minimize adverse impacts
- Accommodate large trucks/freight & OSOW
- High-speed context
- Large truck/freight/OSOW vehicle accommodations
- Addressed driver expectancy for high-speed context
- Flared two-lane entries
