Deale traffic circle aims to boost safety

The State Highway Administration officially opened a traffic circle this week in Deale aimed at reducing crashes and improving pedestrian safety.

The $2 million single-lane roundabout is in the center of the intersection of Routes 258 and 256, where there had been 16 crashes -- none fatal -- between 2001 and 2006.

The roundabout includes a sidewalk. Previously pedestrians walked on the shoulder of the road.

The intersection previously had no traffic signal or stop sign.
