Roundabouts are becoming more common in the US. With all the infrastructure issues, why are we installing "roundabouts". This isn't a rant about
the pros and cons, but it would be easy to argue that 6 million is way over the top:
Its the location of this roundabout that makes me ask the question.
I live in Anderson California with a population of about 10,000. We just got our very own roundabout.
Its probably just a coincidence that our roundabout is in such a strategic location. Its, on the outskirts of town, next to California's main freeway
(I-5) the main pacific railway, empty mill, our main food supply (walmart), and its where most of the back roads reach the freeway. It also, has a
hill in the middle of it, so you cant see around it, that happens to be the perfect size for a guard shack. (I know Im thinking too hard lol)
If I were to pick a location, that would give me immediate control over people getting into the back woods, or sorting out the population for
transport. This would be "the location". It would also be a perfect place to shut down the north bound !-5, because there are so few off ramps,
south of this location. And the freeway makes a wide swing around a hill, that would keep you from knowing this was ahead, until there was no escape.
The newspaper clipping above says its part of a grant for "Corridor Mobility Improvement". Believe me when I tell you this doesn't add one little
measure to improve any freeway mobility. Most of the locals hate it. Its confusing, you cant see around it. It really sucks. Are they roundabouts or
Im just wondering are these being installed where you live? And are they in such "strategic" locations? Ive probably read a few too many ATS
conspiracy threads, lol.
