Acadiana drivers have developed a love/hate relationship with the roundabout over the past few years. I have to admit, in the beginning, I wasn't to keen on the idea of a traffic circle but in places like the intersection of Rue de Belier and Highway 93 the roundabout actually speeds up the flow of traffic.

If you live in Youngsville I am pretty sure that you have a roundabout installed in your home they are so prevalent there. We're now getting word that more than 30 different locations across Acadiana are being considered for the installation of roundabouts to aid in the flow of traffic.

The Metro Planning Organization is currently studying 35 different locations for possible roundabouts. Each location will be considered on an individual basis. Once identified further study will go into the decision as to whether or not a roundabout is the best solution for that specific location.

These are the locations that are under consideration according to a report on
