Why can't we see through the roundabouts in River Falls?
Evaluation of sight distance at roundabouts includes both intersection sight distance and stopping sight distance. The fundamental principles of both forms of sight distance are the same at roundabouts as for other types of intersections and are dependent on vehicle speed. All City roundabouts are posted and should be driven at 15 mph. If you approach and travel through this intersection at 15 mph, there is adequate sight distance even though you cannot see through the center island.
