Roundabouts, J-Turns, etc. — Understanding their Economic Impacts

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  No Date


This research aims to investigate the economic impact and benefits of J-Turn intersections and roundabout treatments on Minnesota roads. While these treatments are increasingly preferred for their operational and safety advantages, they often face resistance from community residents and nearby businesses. The study's primary focus is to demonstrate the economic benefits of J-Turns and roundabouts to the public, local businesses, and the community as a whole.
