New Albany Road/Fodor Road Roundabout
The New Albany Road/Fodor Road intersection experienced significant congestion and delays during peak periods. It was deteriorating in terms of safety performance, yet it did not have enough traffic volume sustained throughout the day to warrant installation of a traffic signal under applicable regulations. EMH&T provided a feasibility study for the City of Columbus and City of New Albany that recommended a modern roundabout to improve intersection capacity and reduce conflict points and crashes. The concept gave improved access to adjacent land uses without compromising roadway operations. Born from a unique partnership between the Kroger Company and the City of Columbus, this Public-Private Partnership (3P process) was the first modern roundabout opened to traffic in the City of Columbus.
