Council has an opportunity, on Tuesday, to move to improve Trinity Drive for all citizens. The proposed Option A “continuous-flow” road design is not a new, untested road strategy invented by communists to slow everyone down. It’s a proven design that has been implemented all over the country and is growing in popularity.
Remember the scene from the movie “Airplane” where the passengers are told to assume crash positions by sprawling themselves across the plane? Well, assume crash positions Los Alamos, because the key to continuous-flow roadways are “modern roundabouts.”
What is proposed in Option A is a single lane continuous-flow road that has two additional periodic lanes for left and right turns with bus pullouts, etc. A wide right shoulder that includes a bike lane serves as the place to pull over when emergency vehicles pass.
The key to continuous-flow is always keeping the traffic lane moving. Drivers turn out of the traffic lane to make turns. Modern roundabouts allow drivers to continue through intersections without waiting for traffic signals.
