Where's All the Roundabouts?

So I was driving from Madison to Athens, and I noticed a sign inside a newly developing subdivision for a "traffic circle" aka roundabout.

I used to know where all the roundabouts were in Huntsville--the one at Providence, the one downtown, the one near Terranovas off 72. But now there seems to be a lot more popping up.

So where have you seen roundabouts in the Huntsville area? Let's see if we can't keep the most complete list of roundabouts in Huntsville.

I know there's one in Athens at Lindsey Lane and Forrest Street.

There are a few in the 5 points area if I'm not mistaken. Can't name streets, but they are there.

Interesting. I didn't know that. Close to any main roads, or tucked away?

There's one big one in a new subdivision off a street off zeirt (sp?). A lot of new sub-divisions have them in all sorts of sizes.

They are 3 of them in the same area. But the thing is it's in very small residental road. If you drive down Russell the run parralel to Andrew Jackson you will run into one of them then you turn on that road going away from Andrew Jackson you will hit 2 more back to back. I live on Rison Ave. so I drive threw them every day. It's really stupid to even have them there tho cause people don't know how to yeild or even use them things. I've almost been into a lot of wrecks cause of someone trying to beat me to it. They are so small that it's hard to make a "roundabout" in a bigger vehicle.

I did that once after an extended stay overseas. My friend told me I'm driving on the wrong side, and I actually said back, "no, I'm not, see I'm on the left side. Oh..."

thought there was one downtown...the one with the clock in the middle...off Andrew Jackson there's so damn many you can't count them all....go east on O'Shagnasty and there's one every block...they're so tight of a circle though not sure you can call them a roundabout.
oh..not sure this one counts but...
I have a "Yes" album that has Roundabout on it..Rick Wakeman on keyboard, if memory serves me right.
