Another Annoying Roundabout Is Coming To Northern Colorado. Where?
The roundabouts around Colorado are becoming more of the normal, and now another is on the way to Northern Colorado. Where will this new circle of fun land?
New Roundabout In Northern Colorado
Not to date myself, but I remember taking the driver's test when I was 15, and being asked about a roundabout scenario. How they work, who has the right of way etc. but I'd never gone through one or even seen one so I'm pretty sure I got it wrong. Back in the early 2000s, there was only one roundabout in the Northglenn, Colorado area where I grew up. I'm pretty sure that one might have been the only one anywhere close at the time. It was over by the Northglenn Market Place (the old Northglenn Mall), but I wasn't really a frequent driver of that area so I just didn't know the drill on this "new" traffic flow design.
Now, roundabouts are all over the place. I have to go through four of them a day just to get home these days. Newsflash, people still don't know how to use them. The person in the roundabout has the right of way, and you yield to them not stop if it's clear, in case you were wondering... Hopefully, you know that because construction on another lovely roundabout has begun in Northern Colorado.
Where Will The New Colorado Roundabout Be?
The new Northern Colorado roundabout is located at the intersection of Weld County Road 33 and Weld County Road 74, which is just west of Eaton, Colorado. The cost of this new roundabout? Roughly $9.3 million according to this Weld County Improvement Project List. This new roundabout construction is just starting, and won't be complete until roughly the end of September, so that area will be full of construction activity through the end of summer at the earliest.
