Course Description

133-Roundabout Geometric Design

This course is a summary of the geometric design process for modern roundabouts. Various city, state and FHWA design guides are reviewed along with source locations and free download sites. The contents of this course are intended to serve as guidance and not as an absolute standard or rule.

When you complete this course, you should be familiar with the general design guidelines for modern roundabouts. The course objective is to give engineers and designers an in-depth look at the principles to be considered when selecting and designing roundabouts.

133-Roundabout This is only a PDF. It is an overview of, and the same information you can get from the free FHWA Report 672 Chapter 6, which is actually more in depth if you are looking to expand your knowledge of roundabout design. If you just want PDH's, this is fine and I'm not trying to sabotage SunCam, but only want to make prospective course buyers aware of what they will get.

A great overview and compilation of material that actually gives an excellent starting point in the design process of the various roundabout types (single lane-multi lane, etc) and their respective requirements for a complete design. This course has taken the myriad, but often inpentratable outline and information of Chapter 6 of the FHWA Roundabout Guide (Report 672) and condensed it into a real design manual. I appreciate the author providing the link to the downloadable Chapter 6. It is apparent the author has much experience in this area of design and explained all design requirements completely. The test questions provided an excellent overview of material. With this course and my experience (limited in roundabout design) in roadway design, I feel confident that I could execute a complete design; dealing with local authorities, local codes, and intersection/roadway design. A quality course.

The course was very informative and supported what I observed to be the design of roundabouts in both Ireland and Scotland on my visit this past year. The only bug I noticed was in test question 23. The stopping sight distance was ... No big deal!!
Portions of the reviewers comments were removed because they discussed the answers to test questions

Th8is course was good for me since the state of Georgia is planning to install several roundabout's in my community. I recommend this course to anyone that is concerned about roundabouts being installed close to them.

Good content, well-written (but there are a few typos, mostly words dropped) and well-illustrated

The program (text and test procedure) are clear and convenient, and well-priced. I would definitely take advantage of future opportunities like this with SunCam.

You need to check the scoring on question #2.

Nice review of traffic circle design principles

I reviewed this course for my Florida PE license renewal. The course is nicely designed; concise and to the point. It is based on FHWA Roundabout Design - Chapter 6 and covers basic design principles of roundabouts (traffic circles). Highly recommended as a continued education course for practicing Traffic / Highway / Transportation Engineers.
