At American Line Striping & Signage, the crew strives to install pavement markings and signage for circles/roundabouts that should be integrally designed to correspond to the geometric design and its intended lane use.
For smooth traffic flow to drivers, clear and accurate pavement markings on the approaches to the circular roadway and roundabout should be compatible with each other. They should also provide a consistent message that facilitates smooth and unimpeded movement through the circular intersection so that vehicles do not have to change lanes within the circulatory roadway in order to exit the roundabout in a given direction.
These are yield markings at a traffic circle in Spring Valley Estates, in Buckingham, Bucks County, PA. They operate very effectively for the traffic community.
