Modern Roundabouts, Toxic Emissions & Climate Change
Research Idea Scope
Investigate the potential benefits of converting traditional cross intersections to modern roundbouts.
Urgency and Payoff
This wholly overlooked infrastructure modification is a very low-tech, sustainable approach that has the potential to reduce mobile source emissions by as much as 25-30% at some intersections, yet is completely off the radar of the environmental community.
