Help with Roundabout - Lincoln NE

Postby Red-83 » Sat Nov 24, 2012 11:07 am

I am working on my 1st roundabout and used 2-way roads into the circle. The roundabout was created by another wazer before construction was complete and I am trying to improve the roads that lead into the circle.

Is the distance between the roads such that I should use 1-way roads? So you can see the intersection I have included the link from the Lincoln Department of Public Works. ... TTTTTTTTFT ... ams-lg.jpg

Thanks in advance for your help

Presuming those are merely painted and not hard separators, I'd keep to single two way roads connecting to the roundabout. If they are solid then it depends how far back they go.

Yes. You've definitely created the roundabout properly. There wouldn't be enough distance between the road segments. If you haven't looked at it already you can get a good sense for things in the best practices guidelines ( ).

In looking at the nearby road segments though there's still a bit more that needs to be done ( ). Laramie St, and 1st St (in two locations) could be simplified down into one segment. There's map editor shortcuts ( ) you can use to join up to similar highlighted road segments. You can also use delete extra nodes to simplify the road segments. There's a lot of node points that connect into that roundabout that could be removed as there's limits to how much detail the Waze client shows.
