Also, just so everyone is aware. They are widening the road leading to Hartville Hardware. Rt 619 from the hardware west is all tore up. Traffic is being maintained but there will be delays. And that road is always busy anyway, especially when the flea market is open. Approaching from the east is not too bad. There is a back way into the flea market and store but if the flea market is open that is clogged too.
I was thru there this evening and the traffic was light but it is still a mess.
Plan on extra time.
I had not heard this. We can certainly make adjustments.

About a month ago I was in the hardware and asked one of the guys if they know when construction was going to start. He did not know but said it would be soon.
See this link for some helpful information.

The problem with roundabouts is people don't know how to drive and read signs.

Picky, Picky Picky... I was no visual benefit! You may have had your eyes closed !
Are you implying you put your audience to sleep?

+1

(Properly Designed) Roundabouts are dramatically faster and safer than any other type of intersection. It's just that Americans in general don't know how to drive through them. You only have to look for traffic from one direction, and then go if there isn't anybody coming. If you're lucky, you barely have to slow down.

And third unrelated, so unmerged, response:

We should also probably require the use of name tags. With both real first name, and online handle. Mark won't be that hard to figure out, he's basically got his driver's license in his header :) . And there's guys like MagicBob who seem to actually be called that. But a guy like me, you won't pick out of the crowd, and it will build the chapter and the forum.
