A couple of days ago, a reader expressed support for a roundabout at the intersection of Kings Way and Frederica Road. Personally, I am now a believer in roundabouts after initially having had serious reservations about the original Demere Road/Frederica Road roundabout design.
Recently, Bob Torras suggested an incredibly brilliant re-design for improving the “St. Simons Gateway” mess into a smooth flowing roundabout. After now seeing the efficiency of roundabouts in action, I can certainly envision a roundabout at Kings Way and Frederica Road as being very effective.
For the same money, I strongly support a roundabout for that intersection. I would also recommend that Glynn County take a serious look at Bob Torras’ brilliant ideas for fixing the “gateway.” While I don’t always agree with GDOTs plans and initiatives, I do agree with their proclamation that roundabouts work well to improve traffic flow and traffic safety.
