S. 42nd St. and Jasper Rd. Roundabout
MTJ Roundabout Engineering provided design and Peer Review services for this project in Springfield, OR. Residential concerns were a major part of this project and, in an effort to provide distinct way-finding guidance to pedestrians, an innovative shrub planting design was devised to create a natural barrier between the roadway and the sidewalk. Plantings like these are a common recommendation made by MTJ, along with dense plantings in the center of a roundabout to decrease maintenance requirements for city crews and improve driver guidance when entering the intersection.
