Coming To Salisbury Maryland

I'm all for a roundabout in the right location, but how backed up are those lights before 50 going to get? They're already backed up now, that's just going to lead to gridlock inside the traffic circle. People struggle here to even maintain their lanes, God forbid they encounter a 4 way stop intersection. Asking for trouble.

If the left turns on to and and off of Mill Street between Salisbury Parkway and the proposed roundabout were eliminated I would expect traffic to moving quite smoothly.

This 'solution' is a debacle in waiting. Multiple lanes inbound from several directions currently. How will they be channeled?

I'm aware of and have traversed 4 local roundabouts over the past couple years.

Fruitland's is smaller than it should be because they cheaped out on acquiring sufficient real estate but otherwise handles the intersection of two roads.

Princess Anne is off to the side and handles two small roads with modest traffic and good sight lines.

Federalsburg is large enough for the task and handles two well traveled country roads and trucks.

The Royal Farms/Wor-Wic one is a botch. Drivers coming off Rt. 50 do not have time to assess the unusual lane choices facing them because the roundabout is just a few car lengths from the highway. Again, a smaller than ideal footprint was chosen for expediency even though much more traffic is to be expected as additional commercial development occurs nearby.

'Jake's Mistake' will be a lasting monument to genuinely incompetent planning. Short on both land and money - so full speed ahead!

Roundabouts have been used effectively in Europe for decades. Properly used, a roundabout allows flow without traffic ever having to stop. But, in an area where a 4-Way stop is overly complicated to many drivers...I don't have high expectations for those same drivers to negotiate roundabouts.

Change some streets to one way into SBY and Mill one way out of SBY. Easy and inexpensive.

You have to eliminate the mills st light with flasher during peak times with no left turn onto west main. Right turn only from west main onto mills st

Who cares what they do in your rope. Some places they drive on left side of the road too, you want to start that here also?

If Mill street is one way to 50 and main street is right turn only on to Mill, then no light is need at that intersection. Only light needed is at 50.
