Roundabouts

An Overland Park RoundaboutRoundabouts are circular intersections used throughout the world, and more recently, Kansas City and Overland Park.

A traffic calming measure, roundabouts serve vehicles from every approach simultaneously unlike traffic signals, which can cause delays. The center islands of a roundabout deflect entering traffic and reinforce driving speeds lower than 25 mph.

Overland Park's roundabouts include:

  • Santa Fe and Conser (two-lane);
  • 110th and Lamar (two-lane);
  • 133rd and Lamar (two-lane); and
  • Smaller, one-lane versions throughout city.

Roundabouts are one of the safest types of intersections. They reduce injury accidents, delay traffic, and reduce fuel consumption, air pollution and construction costs.
