Roundabouts proposed to reduce traffic congestion in Waugh

ALDOT proposes adding roundabouts in Waugh

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Alabama Department of Transportation released a proposal Wednesday to build roundabouts to ease traffic woes in Waugh in east Montgomery County.

They are proposing the roundabouts along State Road 126 and Highway 80 from the Interstate 85 southbound ramps to Marler Road.

This area experiences a high traffic volume with congestion throughout the day as more people have moved to the Pike Road area. The congestion at times backs up on Interstate 85 at Exit 16.

The plan would convert three intersections into roundabouts and convert some driveways to a right in/right out only turn movement to aid in preventing crashes.

ALDOT is looking for comments on the proposal, you have a month to submit them.
