The roundabout on the Gondola Point Arterial is open. If you’re unfamiliar with roundabouts, here are some rules to keep in mind:
As you approach a roundabout, reduce your speed, check for signage, watch for pedestrians and be prepared to stop.
Yield the right-of-way to vehicles already in the roundabout which will be approaching immediately from the left. The vehicles already in the roundabout have the right-of-way, so you may have to stop.
When there is a sufficient opening in the traffic, enter into the roundabout to your right, and drive counter clockwise.
Once you are in the roundabout, follow the steady flow of traffic. You cannot pass another vehicle or stop in the roundabout unless it is necessary to avoid an accident. If you miss your exit, you can do an extra trip around the traffic circle in order to get another opportunity to exit the intersection.
Always use your signal light as you leave the roundabout.
