Round-About Coming Soon to Hiawatha
The Hiawatha City Council approved moving forward with the Tower Terrace Roadway Expansion design work to include a roundabout at Tower Terrace Road and North Center Point Road at the regular meeting Oct. 16.
A modern roundabout is a circular intersection where drivers travel counterclockwise around a center island. There are no traffic signals or stop signs in a modern roundabout.
Drivers yield at entry to traffic in the roundabout, then enter the intersection and exit at their desired street. Studies by the Federal Highway Administration have found that roundabouts can increase traffic capacity by 30 percent to 50 percent compared to traditional intersections. Roundabouts are designed to make intersections safer and more efficient for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. There are two types of roundabouts: Singlelane roundabouts and multi-lane roundabouts.

Come join the fun and help raise some funds for new park amenities!

Nearly 44 million Americans are uninsured, and eight out of ten of these are workers and another 38 million have inadequate health insurance. With the costs of healthcare skyrocketing, no one can afford to be without healthcare insurance. Obamacare allows Americans, whose employers don't offer healthcare insurance, access to affordable insurance.
