The intersection is redesigned to facilitate better movement for all users, and to improve the usability, safety, and quality of the central open space.
Extend the central space and provide raised pedestrian crossings to ensure safe access while slowing vehicular traffic.
Reduce the roundabout to two travel lanes, decreasing the number of conflicts and lane changes occurring in the circle.
Reconfigure street approaches to as close to 90-degree angles relative to the traffic circle as possible. Ensure all entering vehicles have clear sightlines to oncoming traffic of all modes, and stop or slow all entering vehicles.
Extend sidewalks and the central plaza, dedicating space to street vendors and other active uses. Add planting, trees, seating, lighting, and other street furniture to make the central space more attractive and functional.
Clearly demarcate paths for cyclists throughout the intersection as various cycle facilities on adjacent streets meet the traffic circle. Install cycle lanes on the outside of the roundabout to reduce interaction with vehicles, and change marking pattern at points of potential conflict.
