Updates: Charlie Moran of Public Works Committee reminds me that *ours* is a ONE lane roundabout, so even easier!  And Guilford pointed out these are UMass' materials, not from our Amherst DPW. avb

whose menagerie includes an impatient adult bicyclist trying to get to UMass, a 77 year old mother-in-law, and a 16 year old learner's permit-holding son within a block of this intersection:-)
