Coming soon to an interchange near here.

A roundabout! A traffic circle! A rotary! Whatever you want to call it, we're getting a few, and the first opens Friday.

One of the reporters on my staff called it "The Whirlpool of Death." Given this area's tendency to have a lot of crappy drivers, he might be right. Plus, it looks like snow out there. Fun!

Roundabouts are cool. In our area, we use them at freeway exit ramps instead of traffic lights. That's interesting.

Congrats on your area's first roundabout. I'm proud that our area recently got the first and only Nandos Restaurant in the US!! I ate there today and it was as good as those in the UK. Wasn't that a good restaurant of yours on your travels?
