Has anyone here driven it since they redesigned it? They say the new design should reduce accidents, but I have my doubts. Don't get me wrong, it's far better than sitting and waiting for a signal to move five different roadways, but I'm just not sure that it will reduce the number of wrecks.

There's a flier for the new design of the rotary.

I doubt it will make a difference. It may even get hairier when the new supermarket starts construction and beyond that. The best way to get through there STILL is eyes closed and floor it! (I'm kidding.)

The whol idea of some sections having three lanes seems almost insane to me. Does this mean when I come across Memorial Bridge to go home, I'll have to now cross over TWO lanes to exit the rotary to Bangor Street?

You know, I just went through there last weekend and I think we stayed in the right hand lane off the bridge. I wasn't driving. But traffic was light for a Saturday too. We just breezed through it. It must be crazy still at rush hour. Then add in a grocery store to the mix.
