Fairborn’s first traffic roundabout focus of new website

Questions about the first Fairborn roundabout are answered on a new city website.

The website features frequently asked questions about the roundabout slated to be built in 2019 at Colonel Glenn Highway at Kauffman Avenue. City officials have called this Fairborn’s “fifth most dangerous intersection.”

The site, FairbornRoundabout.com, also allows residents to submit questions about the roundabout to the city. The city provides information about construction costs, current problems at the intersection and data about traffic.

City Engineer Don O’Connor said the intersection’s current angle makes it difficult for drivers to see oncoming traffic.

Four other Fairborn intersections had more crashes in recent years, but city officials said the intersections aren’t favorable for a roundabout.

Construction is set to begin in spring of 2019 with completion by winter. The project is expected to cost $820,000, though federal grant money through the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission will cover up to $336,694 of construction costs, according to the city.
