Modern Roundabouts: Why They Work | WisCommunity

Are you loving or hating roundabouts (sometimes called traffic circles)? Ever wonder why they are suddenly so popular? All this will be explained to you on Thursday, Feb. 24th by two engineers from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Their talk is entitled "Modern Roundabouts: Why They Work." Dan Bieberitz has over 25 years of professional transportation and traffic engineering experience, including safety studies, traffic impact analyses, traffic signal designs, signal optimization timings, and roundabout analysis. Since January of 2017, Mr. Bieberitz has been the WisDOT's regional traffic safety engineer. Previously, he was a Project Manager at two consulting firms in Ohio. Beth Cunningham currently manages highway transportation projects in Barron, Polk, Burnett, St. Croix, Washburn and Douglas counties. She is a 1998 graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and has been with WisDOT since 2000. Throughout her career at WisDOT, Beth has designed and managed the installation of nearly a dozen roundabouts in the five-county area. The session will be 12:30-1:30 in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall (Ritzinger 234) at the UWEC-Barron County campus, located at 1800 College Drive in Rice Lake. This and other instances of the Thursdays at the U Lecture Series are free and open to the public, thanks to financial support from the campus foundation. Neither seating reservations nor parking permits are required for campus guests.
