A 4-minute and an 8-minute video posted by the Missouri Department of Transportation explains how to use and drive through roundabouts.
When Arnold’s new roundabout on Astra Way opens in the fall, a few people will be unfamiliar with procedure of driving through it. The roundabout will be in front of the entrance to the Jefferson County Library-Arnold Branch, the Arnold Recreation Center and Jefferson College’s Arnold Campus.
