LakotaDriveWestRoundabout_08kHave you been through one of Butler County’s roundabout intersections? They’ve been shown to significantly reduce crashes, but some of you might be unfamiliar with how they work. See bceo.org/traffic and scroll down to the section on roundabouts to see information from our County Engineer. BCEO has also published this informational flyer.

As of November 2013, there are six single-lane modern roundabouts on the Butler County road system. A seventh will be constructed in 2014. There are also several within residential or commercial subdivisions.

These tips come from a publication of the Ohio Department of Transportation:

  1. Slow Down
  2. Yield at Entry
  3. Keep Moving
  4. Exit the Roundabout
