SR 198/Farmersville Boulevard Roundabouts
MTJ Roundabout Engineering, working as part of a team with Omni-Means, designed these interchanges in the City of Farmersville, CA. The city had a specific plan area, which encompassed the SR 198/Farmersville Boulevard interchange. The cost to update this interchange with conventional signalized and associated roadway widening was a detriment to the advancement of this plan.
Omni-Means’ preliminary estimates indicated that the use of roundabouts would reduce the cost of the interchange upgrade by over 60% from $30 million to $10 million.
- Significant cost savings
- Closely spaced frontage roads
- High capacity
