“I’ve been designing roundabouts since 2005, a time when drivers and engineers alike were just beginning to embrace this fundamentally simple, but infinitely adaptable intersection type. My accomplishments as a roundabout designer wouldn’t have been possible without the pioneering spirit of early adopters like WisDOT creating the opportunity. I feel exceptionally fortunate to have grown my career along with this emerging practice.
Over nearly 2 decades, I’ve participated in over 100 designs throughout Wisconsin. Even more gratifying, I’ve been able to train several others to expand the practice. What I appreciate most about roundabouts is their ability to provide greater mobility, improved safety, and create a visually striking asset for communities and stakeholders. My favorite example of a roundabout is the State Highway 16 & Cass Street intersection in downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin.”
