    Looks like you could easily fit 8 bollards on that island.

    Racers on road bikes will hate the circle.

    Every other casual rider will love it.

    Mountain bikers on commuter bikes will also love it.

    I rode it in the dark, for the first time, this morning and was a bit surprised by the sharp corner coming out on the uphill side (following the detour). Initial impression is that many cyclists are likely to go through the circle on the wrong side when heading eastbound after the bridgework is complete. That may get exciting.

    Agreed. If they want those who want to follow the rules but don't go there daily to go on the correct side, they will have to put up several signs.

    They could use this as a template--for clarity.Click image for larger version.

    Is this new design practice?
    There's been the W&OD mm0 traffic circle forever, hardly anyone follows traffic circle etiquette there.

    I had no idea that was actually supposed to be a traffic circle. I thought it was just for decoration.

    That being said I rode through this new traffic circle on the Custis trail yesterday and can pretty much guarantee people going eastbound will cut the circle if it's open.

    When the trail is tangent to one side of the circle, it isn't likely that it will get treated like a circle. Most riders (myself included) see the area to the left in the photo as an off-trail paved area.
