Glenn Lichti was born in Ohio and lived in Illinois before moving to Iowa. He is proud of the progress that Rotary has made towards the eradication of polio over the past 30 years. Has Retired from John Deere after 33 years and has been a Rotarian for about five years. Glenn and his wife, Diane, have two boys who are each partners in separate tech companies and a daughter who was just married at their home this past weekend.
Gus Psihoyos and Nate Kieffer from the Dubuque Engineering Department joined us to discuss what the public needs to know about the new roundabout at the intersection of Grandview, Delhi and Grace streets.
Nate explained the benefits of roundabouts: safest type of at-graded intersection, simplified decision making, very high capacity, suitable for high and low flow intersections, better turning radii for trucks and aesthetics.
Why the roundabout is this being constructed: funding through Traffic Safety Fund Grant ($500,000 of $750,000 project), safer and more efficient intersection, updates were needed to the intersection.
Pedestrians should never enter the roundabout area - marked crossings are one car-length away from the roundabout. The design creates simplified decision-making for pedestrians as well.
Construction is scheduled throughout the summer. Although traffic will be limited throughout the duration of the project, all businesses are open.
Thanks to Nate and Gus for the presentation to our club.
Yours in Rotary,
Our fellow Rotarian, Gary Olsen, does a phenomenal job of recording audio and capturing on film all the fun we have at the weekly meetings. He works closely with Kevin Lynch's firm, Net Smart, to keep our club's website as a clear leader across all Rotary websites. If you missed the meeting or want to reminisce, I encourage you to check out the audio, and sometimes video, of the weekly meetings on www.dubuquerotary.org.
