Topeka traffic engineers say a roundabout could improve safety at an intersection near Washburn University.
City Traffic Engineer Linda Voss says there have been 34 accidents in four years at the intersection of SW 17th and Macvicar. She will ask the city council June 9th to approve plans for a roundabout at the intersection.
Voss said the accident rates for the city's other roundabouts are very good. She says a roundabout could help lower the number of accidents at 17th and Macvicar.
Voss says she's spoken with area residents and Washburn University about the plans.
