    It looks terrific with one major exception. It would sure be nice if UK would admit that their insistence on keeping that section of Alumni Drive 2 lane is a major contributor to horrible game day traffic. They want to build a baseball stadium along the same stretch, which will lead to more traffic. Denial is not a good strategy.

    That’s more scenic but couldn’t we get four lanes?

    Wrong 2 lanes at least for the roundabout would have been bad. People dont understand how to use them. Just look at the one on wellington, wrecks all the time

      What’s not to understand? You go around until you get to the exit you want to take. Merging vehicles must yield.

    Roundabouts are great. They keep traffic moving and are much safer.

    Also, more lanes don’t make sense, especially if you are trying to solve a problem that only occurs 6 days a year.
