Around And Around We Go

I posted about this meeting last week but then was unable to attend, so I’m admittedly a few days behind on this.  But last week, I mentioned there was a Citizens Information Meeting being held in Blacksburg to discuss changes to Main Street traffic patterns.  The meeting was covered by WDBJ 7 and WSET 13, you can see their coverage here and here. 

It’s true that narrowing Main Street and installing traffic-control measures can cut down on safety issues for crossingOt pedestrians, but I wonder what they’ll do to traffic and related delays.  The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says that roundabouts reduce traffic delays, but if you look at the roundabout on Virginia Tech’s campus
I’d wonder who their test drivers were! 

What are your thoughts about Main Street in Blacksburg being narrowed?
