As the City of Fishers continues to grow, so do the number of pedestrians, motorists, and visitors traveling within our community.
In an effort to efficiently service traffic and improve safety, Fishers is overseeing roundabout construction at various intersections, including a partnership with INDOT and Hamilton County to invest $124 million along the State Road 37 corridor. Currently, around 16 roundabouts are located in the Fishers area, with 8 under construction or in planning stages.
Roundabouts yield up to a 90% reduction in accident fatalities and 75% fewer conflict points than four-way intersections. They also ensure slower vehicle speeds, which allow more reaction time for drivers according to the Federal Highway Administration. Also, an estimated $5,000 is saved annually in electricity and maintenance costs.
Residents and motorists are encouraged to sign up for weekly Drive Fishers email updates and follow @DriveFishers on Twitter for current updates.
