At the March 23, 2016 Village Council meeting, Don Eslick, Interim Chairman of the Estero Council of Community Leaders, spoke about the use of roundabouts. He stated the Metropolitan Planning Organization is conducting a study of 18 different intersections to evaluate how effective roundabouts would be. The Florida Department of Transportation has adopted a rule that roundabouts should be looked at before traffic lights are installed as roundabouts reduce serious accidents by 80 percent. He recommended the Village think about using roundabouts.
At the ECCL meeting March 11, expert Michael Wallwork gave a presentation about roundabouts.
