Now I think I have heard it all. First the boulevard idea, which was shot down by everyone with an ounce of brains, and now a round-about? As stated earlier by ClosedShop, half that intersection is in Boardman Township, not Poland, and anything Poland does would affect them as well. Before creating a bunch of confused drivers, how about a little traffic survey to determine how many bad crashes have occurred at that intersection. As RealTruth put it, how COULD there be a serious accident with a 25 MPH speed limit which, everyone knows, is strongly enforced. The Post Office created this "problem" so let them solve it. Install traffic actuated lights, right turn only lanes from the post office, a side street exit, etc. Just go through the middle of Columbiana when there's heavy traffic and watch the confusion there. I say plant more trees in Monoxide Park down the road and leave the traffic patterns alone.
