That is how they do it in Europe. My personal favourite (since I used to drive this one) is:

Notice the mini-roundabouts included at 3 of the junction points.

The US is moving away from high-speed rotaries and traffic circles.

The Ghostbuster:
That is likely a good thing. Roundabouts take up far less space than traffic circles anyway.
