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.

Public Meeting Materials

Public Meeting Held Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2022

The Missouri Department of Transportation held a public meeting from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6 to discuss improvements to the intersection of Route 25 and Route K in Gordonville, Missouri. The meeting was held at Gordonville Elementary School, located at 653 Route Z in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

The project includes constructing a roundabout at the intersection of Route 25 and Route K.

“We conducted a study to examine installing a traffic signal or constructing a roundabout in this location,” said MoDOT Project Manager Tim Pickett. “Through the study, the preferred alternate was to construct a roundabout. The proposed roundabout will help traffic flow efficiently and will result in fewer delays during non-peak hours.”

Construction will be staged to allow the area to remain open with minor, short-term lane closures as connections are made to the existing pavement.
