Why a double roundabout?

The original roundabout concept, a large single circle, would have required purchasing a lot of active business property. So the design engineers came back with a solution with fewer impacts to surrounding property.

The large roundabout is designed to serve existing travel to the east, west and south, and the small roundabout is designed to serve future development to the north, between Franklin Boulevard and the Willamette River, as envisioned in the Glenwood Refinement Plan.
