Greg Roth of Veenstra & Kimm Inc. engineering firm of West Des Moines led the presentation, along with Brett Douglas of the landscape engineering firm Genus of Des Moines.

The proposed roundabout at Beaver and Urbandale avenues would be just one lane wide, but it could be expanded to two lanes if necessary, Roth said.
Douglas and Roth said roundabouts have been shown to reduce fatal and injury accidents by more than 70 percent, mainly because they slow the speed of traffic.
When Roth asked for a show of hands favoring three options - making no change, narrowing the intersection and constructing a roundabout - the vast majority of those attending favored the roundabout.

Greg Roth of Veenstra & Kimm Inc. presented the latest results of an ongoing traffic study that included speed data collected at six locations recommended by the council.

Roth said the firm used a radar gun to take between 50 and 100 samples of driving speeds at each location.All of the samples were taken on a clear day when the roads were dry.If 85 percent of the drivers sampled drove within 5 mph of the limit, the posted speed is appropriate, Roth said.
That was the case at two locations - on Warrior Lane between Hickman and Ashworth and on University Avenue east of Waukee High School - where Roth recommended the speed limit remain 35 mph.
Roth recommended increasing the speed limits from 25 to 35 mph on University Avenue west of the high school.
On Laurel Street, between Warrior Lane and Fourth Street, Roth recommended raising the speed limit from 25 to 30 mph.
Roth said the final two areas required further discussion.
On Alice's Road north of Hickman, 85 percent of motorists were clocked driving 11 mph faster than the posted limit of 35 mph.Roth said the council could consider increasing the speed limit there to 40 mph.
Roth said the council could leave that speed limit as is or could bump it to 30 mph and post warning signs.

Hickman Road, in particular, needs further study to see if traffic lights and other safety measures could reduce the number of crashes, said Greg Roth, a staff engineer with Veenstra & Kimm Inc., the city's engineer.

"For the most part, we're seeing that roadways are pretty well established," Roth told the council.Drivers, he said, "are following the residential speed limits."
Accidents are still relatively rare, but increasing with the population, Roth said.
