Decatur's First Traffic Circle

Work crews poured concrete Saturday morning for Decatur’s first traffic circle.

The traffic circle, also called a roundabout, is at Ponce de Leon Place and Oakland Street in the Clairemont neighborhood behind the First Baptist Church of Decatur.

The circle is part of the traffic calming measures the city installed at the request of residents, who complained about speeding cars.

The city has also installed “bulb-outs” at several intersections and improved sidewalk connections.

No word on what will be put in the middle of the traffic circle. Any ideas?
