Traffic circles for Regina Bypass opening to drivers near Balgonie on Tuesday, several popping up in Saskatoon
Two roundabouts are set to open Tuesday near Balgonie, Sask., as part of the Regina Bypass designers’ plan to reduce delays, but as other Canadians have proven, roundabouts are tough to get your mind, well, around.
The circular intersections on Highway 46 replace traditional stop-light intersections and are large enough to accommodate farm equipment.
While traffic circles may seem intimidating initially, they slow cars and handle more traffic than stoplights or stop signs.
