Who ever thought of this round-a-bout should be hanged. Five roads 5-10 feet apart from one another with yield signs on every one of them and nobody moving at any of them, with people also trying to cross. Does anyone know how many accidents have occurred there yet. This round-a-bout should be remove immediately!!!!!!!!!!

It works fine for me. It must be operator error on your part.

Best thing Utica ever did. It is awesome and much neater looking than before. Use to have 5 traffic lights there messing up traffic. It use to be a bottle neck. Very smooth now.

I agree, the round-a-bout should be taken out. The yield signs are not stop signs, pedestrians are dangerous close to traffic and t's just not working. Just wait till all the arterial work when the volume of traffic gets worse. There will be half mile back ups and several more accident for sure.
The space is too small

I agree. It is too small of an area. There is no time to get on or off. I never noticed a bottle neck there until the round a bout. I wondered also if they would provide the stats on the number of accidents it has caused. I have seen many round a bouts and they are all much larger and safer.
