Roundabouts

Roundabouts are circular intersections where drivers travel counterclockwise around a center island. Roundabouts are designed to make intersections safer and more efficient for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists but can still increase traffic capacity up to 50% compared to four-way stops and signalized intersections. Since there are no traffic signals or stop signs, drivers yield at entry to traffic in the roundabout, then enter the intersection and exit at their desired street.

New to roundabouts? We're working on a short video to help you navigate through a roundabout.  In the meantime, learn some tips about navigating through a single-lane roundabout by checking out one of these videos below

The City of Lancaster currently has three single-lane roundabouts. The first, located at Avenue L & Challenger Way, opened in February 2016. The second, located at Lancaster Blvd and 15th Street East, is anticipated to open in June 2019. The third, located at Lancaster Blvd and 15th St West, is anticipated to open in June 2019. All three roundabout projects were constructed with grant funds provided by the State and Federal government.
