Project Overview

In its role as the traffic engineer for Stargazers Village Partners, LP, TPD provided transportation planning and engineering services for the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Strasburg Road (S.R.3062), Romansville Road (S.R.3051), Shadyside Road (Township), and Stargazer Road (S.R.3051).

TPD provided a feasibility study for this intersection in order to determine the viability of a roundabout versus a traditional traffic signal. The multi-road intersection contains three acute angle intersections with the major route. Additionally the proposed development access is located between two offset intersections. This geometry posed various conceptual difficulties when considering an upgrade to the intersections. Through coordination with the Township and PennDOT, the intersection was identified as a candidate for the installation of a five leg roundabout. The analysis also indicated that a portion of the roundabout would be multilane. This is slated to be the first roundabout in the area with a multilane component. The roundabout design is currently under its final review by PennDOT.

TPD completed the following tasks for the design of the roundabout:

- Roundabout capacity analysis

- Conceptual design of the roundabout

- Preparation of fully engineered final design plans for the proposed roundabout

- Permitting coordination with Pennsylvania Department of Transportation District and Central Offices
