From Harford County government:
The Harford County Department of Public Works has scheduled a public hearing on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at the Harford County Public Library in Bel Air. The meeting will commence at 6:00 p.m.
The purpose of the meeting is to allow the public to gain information pertaining to the construction of the first mini-roundabout which is proposed at the intersection of MacPhail Road and Tollgate Road in Bel Air. Construction of the mini-roundabout is scheduled to begin later this summer.
According to the Department of Public Works, a mini-roundabout functions virtually identical to a roundabout except it is slightly smaller and does not have landscaping in the central island. The advantage of a mini-roundabout is they can fit into existing intersections, usually within existing right-of-way limits, thereby saving money and reducing the impact to adjacent residences or businesses.
For further information regarding construction of Harford County’s first mini-roundabout, contact Jeff Stratmeyer, P.E., or Rick Bates, Project Manager of the Harford County Department of Public Works at 410-638-3509, Monday through Friday during normal business hours.
