About

The proposed project includes constructing a roundabout at the Route 51/72 intersection in Patton, Missouri. Currently, the intersection has stop control on Route 51 with traffic on Route 72 moving freely.

Roundabouts allow traffic to flow with little to no stopping, resulting in calmer traffic and reducing the likelihood of severe crashes.

Public Meeting Held July 9, 2024

The Missouri Department of Transportation held a public meeting from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 9 to discuss plans to improve the Route 51/72 intersection in Patton, Missouri. The meeting was held at MoDOT’s Patton maintenance facility, located at 33390 Herring Drive, Patton, Missouri. 

The meeting handout and online comment form are available below. Comments will be accepted through July 23, 2024.

About Roundabouts

Driving in circles can be a good thing, if it means you get where you want to go quicker and safer. That’s why the Missouri Department of Transportation is using roundabouts as a way to manage traffic at some intersections. This video will help you better understand how to navigate a roundabout, plus explain the many benefits they have compared to traditional traffic signal intersections.

Navigating a Roundabout: 

When approaching a roundabout, you will see a dashed white line and a yield sign at each entry point. Slow down, use your turn signal, look for oncoming cars, pedestrians, and bicyclists. When you see a safe opening, proceed into the roundabout. Follow the circle of traffic until you see the road you want to turn onto, then exit out of the roundabout. When entering a roundabout, remember, all vehicles already within the roundabout have the right of way. Do not enter a roundabout if an emergency vehicle is approaching a roundabout. If an emergency vehicle approaches while you are in a roundabout, exit immediately and pull over to the right side of the road. Never turn left when entering a roundabout. When exiting, be sure to use your right turn signal.
