Hearon Circle

Spartanburg, SC

OVERVIEW

MTJ was retained by the SC DOT to review and design intersection improvements at this high-profile location aimed at improving the existing roundabout’s poor safety record. This project demonstrated MTJ Engineering’s expertise in bringing together many elements of successful roundabout design.

SUMMARY

The alternative designs recommended three specific areas of improvement:

  • Operations
  • Signing and markings
  • Speed control

 
The combination yielded a significant reduction in conflict points, while maintaining a desirable LOS (level of service).

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Rodel operational analysis to determine necessary laneage
  • Improved intersection operations
  • Enhanced pedestrian safety
  • Improved driver guidance
