SR91-Darrow Road (from Edison Blvd to "The Square")
Week of 1/16: Dominion East Ohio Gas will be repairing road patches on SR91-Darrow Road from Edison Blvd to “The Square” (includes portions of SR82/Church Street/Ravenna Rd).
Traffic will be maintained by flaggers.
The State Route 91/Glenwood roundabout is now fully open.
It’s important to remember, traffic approaching the roundabout must slow down and yield until there is a safe gap before entering the roundabout. Sometimes, yielding will require coming to a complete stop. Drivers that are already in the roundabout have the right of way and should not stop while circulating in the roundabout. As a result, drivers approaching the roundabout should be prepared to stop in a similar manner to a four-way stop. Before entering the roundabout, drivers must look left to determine if there is a safe gap prior to entering.
Here are a few key things to remember about driving roundabouts:-Slow down
Roundabout ahead, 15 MPH
-Choose a lane
Right lane if turning right, left lane if turning left.
-Yield to drivers in the roundabout
Look left for traffic already in the roundabout. That means you may need to stop prior to entering the roundabout!!
-Stay in your lane; do not change lanes
Pick a lane prior to entering the roundabout. Right lane if turning right, left lane if turning left.
-Do not stop in the roundabout
The car in the roundabout has the right of way. That means once you have yielded and successfully entered the roundabout you have the right of way to go around.
-Avoid driving next to oversized vehicles
The roundabout is designed for oversized vehicles however, it is best to give them room and not enter with a semi-truck or ride next to it.
-Proceed to your exist
Turn signals should be used. A Right turn signal lets the driver approaching the roundabout know you are exiting, which allows them to enter.
