I'm too stupid to use a roundabout let alone this but it's the government fault for expecting me, a licensed driver, to be able to follow directions.

This includes a DOT video:

I assume this eliminates the super-short exit ramp onto Western?

They're incredibly good so long as idiots don't block the intersections, which isn't all that different from normal intersections.

I'm not sure that they accounted for post-covid mania with this design.

I mean it takes a lot of effort to drive on the wrong side of one, even more than just driving on the wrong side of a normal road IMO.

We’re supposed to get one out near my house at 40-42, I’m looking forward to it.

I wish this was in place in 2005 when I rear-ended that person sitting still on the Western Blvd. entrance/exit ramp.

^^yooo you live around 40/42? Man traffic there is a total bitch any time of day. I’m not far from there (McGee’s crossroads). That 42 area sounds like it’s all gonna change drastically. A median all the way down 42 so no left turns except at lights and the diamond thing. Then I guess they’re adding an exit/entrance for 40 up by West View Elem too. Seems like a terrible place for a new on/off ramp but what do I know.

Lol look at us southern Wake county folks. I live not far from there either. I hate it when I have to go to Lowes. That whole area is just ridiculous.

40/42 may be the worst traffic in the state. I avoid the area nearly completely. Wouldn't even consider anywhere close by when I was looking to move. Of course, all small towns are turning into this... the lack of planning is astounding, though not surprising. Gotta have that tax revenue and claim they're doing something about housing supply.
