Delay on roundabouts good decision

Plaudits to the Blue Earth County Board asking for a delay for the Highway 22 roundabouts.

Recently, a television station had a segment on roundabout — it was very descriptive.

The segment showed two or three cars traversing on the roundabout. It was neat and orderly. However, there is an almost continous stream of traffic going both ways on Highway 22 — not just two or three cars at a time.

How could one possibly enter from Adams Street or Madison Avenue with this steady line of traffic on Highway 22? With the present stop lights, time is provided to cross Highway 22.

If the roundabouts are created, I doubt I would ever get to Hy-Vee, Applebees, AAA, etc.
