Swigart Road Roundabout
The Kleingers Group provided construction drawings for the widening of 1600 feet of Swigart Road and 500 feet of the Rahn Road extension to Swigart Road. The project included a modern roundabout at a new intersection created to serve as the primary entrance for a new residential subdivision. Since one leg of the intersection involved high speeds, the rural roundabout incorporated geometric elements in advance of the roundabout to alert drivers of the upcoming intersection. Careful coordination between the public roadway improvements and the adjacent development was crucial to the success of this project. Kleingers provided the field survey, traffic planning, conceptual layouts, and detailed design for the intersection to comply with Federal Highway Administration guidelines for modern roundabouts. The project also included drainage improvements, maintenance of traffic plans, and coordination with various public agencies and developers.
