Does anybody know why that might be?

Iíve seen a lot in Columbus as well. I just assumed it was because of the hurricane. That part of Florida is full of Ohio expats.

So I take the new roundabout for OH 163/North Shore Blvd/Englebeck Rd is underway.

When I was up there over Labor Day, signs indicated construction would begin Sept. 12, so I guess it did.  Hopefully, it will be completed before Memorial Day.  I'll be up there again in October, so I'll be interested to see how much has been accomplished.

I was in the area over last weekend.  The southern half of the roundabout is complete.  Between Sunday (9th) and Monday (10th) they diverted through traffic onto the completed section of the roundabout, so I assume construction of the north half commenced on Monday.  If they keep up this pace, it should be complete by Thanksgiving (assuming they can still get asphalt).

some local roundabouts of note to me:
- OH 269 and Portland Rd north of Bellevue
- OH 4 and OH 113 east of Bellevue (currently signalized, has odd angle and sits on a ridge with houses and a business in close proximity, will be interesting to see how they do it)
- US 20 and OH 511 (would be 2nd roundabout on US 20's two lane section between Norwalk and Oberlin)

US 23 Marion County:
- Eliminate (cul-de-sac) Bethlehem Rd intersection
- convert Newmans Cardington Rd intersection to RIRO with turn lanes

That's interesting. The OH 4 - OH 113 intersection probably was only signalized due to that extreme skew. There seems to be room to put the roundabout to the east of the intersection and avoid much taking on the western developed side of the intersection. It also remains to be seen if it's a 5-legged roundabout to accommodate the local Edmonds Road intersection just north, or if they'll just turn that into a cul-de-sac.


As for US 20 - OH 511, they have the room but I ask why is it necessary. US 20 has so much more traffic and this will force the highway-speed traffic to slow down to manipulate the roundabout. But there is plenty of room with the corner gas station abandoned and farmland in two of the other three quadrants. I guess it's probably my bias about not replacing unsignalized intersections with roundabouts when one side has heavy traffic.

Fun fact: my first "real" summer job was at Green Circle Growers plant 5 just south of US 20 on 511.
