The ins and outs of roundabouts: 108th Street NE and Shoultes Road drivers, be prepared
   Single-lane roundabouts can be an intimidating, nerve-wracking
form of traffic control for first-time users.
   But look at this way: At least it isn’t the dozen unpainted lanes
circling the Arc de Triumph in Paris, like Clark Griswold and did
in the comedy film National Lampoon’s European Vacation.
Roundabouts are a staple of driving in Europe, East Coast U.S.
and yes, even closer to home, in the City of Arlington. In fact,
roundabouts are becoming a common site on local roads because
of two important benefits - shorter wait times at the intersections
and improved traffic safety.
   Now it’s time for Marysville-area drivers to get a head start on
how to drive a roundabout.
   Snohomish County Public Works in June began installing a
roundabout at 108th Street NE and 51st Avenue (Shoultes Road)
near Marysville-Pilchuck High School (MPHS). Early in the
planning phase, the project team met with MPHS and Marysville
Fire District representatives to ensure that emergency response                                               Courtesy of Snohomish County Public Works
issues were addressed.
   Currently there are long backups and lengthy delays at the                4 Simple Rules to Navigate the Roundabout
intersection. The new, single-lane roundabout will better
accommodate projected traffic needs and be ready by the first week              at 108th Street NE and Shoultes Road
of September.
                                                                           STEP 1 Slow Down.
