Navigating the Farmersville Roundabouts

Posted by on Jun 30, 2016 in Blog, News | 0 comments

Omni Means and the City of Farmersville are excited about the soon to be completed roundabouts at the Route 198/Farmersville Boulevard interchange. In addition to providing planning and design services for this highly visible City of Farmersville project, Omni Means continued to provide design support during construction. In anticipation of the upcoming opening of the roundabouts to all directions of traffic, Omni Means assisted the City in preparing the traveling public for the new traffic patterns. The image below illustrates the functional elements specific to the Farmersville Roundabouts and was prepared for inclusion in the City’s newsletter, and posting on the City’s website.

The exhibit highlights the traffic patterns for vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists, and also highlights other special characteristics, such as the truck aprons, and pedestrian refuge areas. Also included are the general rules of the road for navigating through a roundabout. We certainly believe this will help prepare the local community and traveling public for what’s to come!

We are looking forward to seeing the positive results this project will have on the City of Farmersville for a long time to come!

For a snapshot of what the roundabouts looked like earlier this month, check out videos of them during construction on the City’s Website here: http://ca-farmersville.civicplus.com/269/Farmersville-Blvd-Roundabout.
