The new University Drive roundabout at Fifth Avenue South is open.
Roundabout fundamentals include:
- Yield to drivers already in the roundabout
- Stay in your lane; do not change lanes
- Do not stop in the roundabout
- Avoid driving next to oversized vehicles

Cyclists can either ride with traffic inside the roundbout or use the crosswalks appropriately.
Cyclists who ride with traffic must follow the same rules as vehicles and must yield as they enter the roundabout. Since traffic moves slowly in the circle, cyclists should be able to travel at or near the same speed as motorists, staying in line with circulating traffic.
Pedestrians should cross only at crosswalks and should always stay on designated walkways.
