Just drove through there this morning.
Wish I could have transplanted those huge Sycamore trees to my house.
That intersection will be much safer with a roundabout.

Was it a dangerous intersection?   We have driven Greentree to Lebanon many times and have never seen an accident/problem at that intersection.

Yes with the new casino, the flea market, and the church there has been a large increase in traffic. I guess a roundabout is probable the less expensive solution but I not sure it is the safest. A traffic light system would probably cost over a hundred thousand not to mention the maintenance of the system where a roundabout they install it a be done with it.

It doesn't matter if a roundabout is installed. People will just drive right over the middle of the roundabout. They always do.

I hope they install spikes so the next redneck in their trophy truck that decides to drive over the Cin Day roundabout gets to buy new tires.

Totally agree this is a very dangerous intersection. Glad to see the upgrade but why does it take 5 months to do this?
