To reduce traffic back-ups that occur at the intersection of University Drive and Old Club Road (the entrance to Parkland Golf and Country Club), a roundabout will be constructed to replace the existing three-way stop intersection. The center of this roundabout, like others in the City of Parkland (Riverside Drive-Holmberg Road and Parkside Drive-Holmberg Road) will be landscaped and have various features.
Two conceptual designs were created for the roundabout features. During the City Commission meeting on August 19, 2020, the City Commission unanimously approved conceptual design #1 (fountain) which had been overwhelmingly preferred by residents.
Construction is scheduled to begin by June 2021 and be completed by the end of 2021. At times this project may have significant impact on traffic.
To navigate through a single lane roundabout: reduce your speed to 10-15 mph as you approach the roundabout. Be aware of bicyclists and pedestrians, look left for oncoming traffic (traffic moves counter-clockwise), yield to vehicles already in the roundabout, wait for a gap and enter. DO NOT STOP in the roundabout, do not pass other vehicles, and use your turn signal to exit the roundabout to the right. Yield to pedestrians crossing the exit lane and always allow emergency vehicles to pass. View frequently asked questions about roundabouts.
