Traffic roundabouts made their first appearances on major Butler County roads in 2008. Modern roundabouts were built at the Hamilton Mason Road / Liberty Fairfield Road / Vinnedge Road intersection as well as at the Lakota Drive West and Eagleridge Drive intersection. Since then additional roundabouts have been installed and more are being planned. See the current list at the bottom of this page.
This alternative to typical at-grade intersections offers improved safety while keeping traffic flowing at slower speeds through the intersection. Some motorists may require a little tutoring on just how roundabouts function and how to best use them. So we’ve created a downloadable INFOGRAPHIC that explains the benefits of a roundabout and how to approach, yield, enter, and exit a roundabout. It also shows more details such as location, maintenance responsibility, and type of roundabout.“It’s the number 1 tool in our toolbox.” – Greg Wilkens, Butler County Engineer

Check out this informative video from Utah Dept. of Transportation on roundabouts that showcases the benefits of roundabouts in a unique way! Its points are easy to understand and apply as you drive through Butler County roundabouts.
