Roundabouts still confusing you? Questions answered June 29 in Oshkosh

Traffic experts ready to make you a roundabout expert

(Green Bay) A meeting to provide motorists with all the information they need to navigate roundabouts is scheduled for Wednesday, June 29, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Oshkosh North High School Auditorium and Commons. Anyone is welcome to attend the free event.

The seminar is all about roundabouts: what they are, why they are being built as part of the US 41 expansion project and what motorists need to know about driving through them. It will be an “Open House” style meeting, so anyone can drop in at any time. Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) staff will give multiple 15-minute presentations during the evening and be available to answer questions.

Oshkosh North High School is located at 1100 W. Smith Street, Oshkosh. Please use the front entrance to the school.

A number of roundabouts have already opened in Winnebago County as part of the US 41 Project. In July, four roundabouts will open to traffic at the 9th Avenue interchange in Oshkosh. While they are easy to navigate, there is a learning curve for motorists who are new to them. This meeting is part of an overall outreach campaign by WisDOT to educate motorists about roundabouts.
