When roundabouts are implemented, they are usually replacing some form of all-way stop intersection control that is already in use. This study compares two types of intersections: all-way stops and roundabouts. More specifically, it looks at previous research completed comparing these intersection types. Ten different previous research projects were looked at in this study to create this synthesis. Results that were compared include both operational parameters such as efficiency and delay, as well as safety.

Biographical Information about Author(s)

I started learning about roundabouts in CE-252 this semester and wanted the answer the question of is implementing a roundabout in a certain type of intersection more beneficial depending on the intersection. I am a Civil Engineering major, graduating in May 2025. I want to own my own engineering firm some day.
