FDOT: Roundabout Consideration Required for new Construction Projects

As of 2015, roundabouts will be considered at all new intersections, and for all intersection reconfigurations according to the FDOT roundabout policy:
A roundabout alternative must be evaluated on new construction and reconstruction projects. Evaluation is also required for all other types of projects that propose new signalization or require a change in an un-signalized intersection control. An evaluation is not required for minor operational improvements such as changes to signal phasing, or for signal replacement projects where the primary purpose is to upgrade deficient equipment and installations.
Resources about roundabouts, including videos, flyers, design standards, FDOT roundabout policy, and current roundabout locations on state roads, are available online at
