The more traffic increases in Western Colorado, the more we will see intersections fill up with signal lights and roundabouts to help ease the flow of cars for commuters.

Roundabouts are one of many solutions to such issues as Grand Junction continues to grow. Some intersections are good with simple stop signs while major intersections require more control.

Grand Junction, Home of Roundabouts

The city of Grand Junction has been leaning into roundabouts since the mid-90s. Most feedback I hear about roundabouts is awful, and I can not repeat those statements here. However, we had several of you tell us in the gallery below that you don't mind roundabouts at all. We also heard from many who dislike every last one of them.

The Cost of Traffic Lights

Stop signs are cheap but people like to steal them or sometimes knock them over. Traffic lights and traffic signals can cost a city hundreds of thousands of dollars. Roundabouts can cost just as much when building them around a major highway but can be much cheaper than signals when used in areas like Downtown Grand Junction.

Nobody Loves Roundabouts More Than the French
