Saw this on MSU's construction website, kind of a cool video showing how they're taking out the traffic circle while still saving the mature trees in the center.
PS- dont blow your speakers by trying to turn up the volume so you can hear something, there is no sound.
The existing Bogue Street and Shaw Lane traffic circle does not meet current U.S. Access Board's design guidelines for public rights-of-way to provide equal accessibility for all users. These new standards require design modifications and traffic signals for pedestrian safety, particularly pedestrians with mobility disabilities. Additionally, these new standards do not support continued use of a traffic circle for an intersection with high volumes of pedestrians, bicycles, and vehicles. As part of the redesign of the Bogue Street and Shaw Lane intersection, the closure of a section of Bogue Street will allow for further expansion of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB).

So basically its the same as the other side of shaw by the international center. Great... just what we need, more lights. I happen to like traffic circles but college students are too impatient to use them correctly. At least they're keeping the green space.
Or they are too asian to use them correctly...
If you read the blurb with the video it is because the bureaucrats do not like traffic circles.
"Additionally, these new standards do not support continued use of a traffic circle for an intersection with high volumes of pedestrians, bicycles, and vehicles."
Apparently diversity in road design is not a good thing. I am not convinced that they can not make a traffic circle work. I wonder when they will go after the Michigan left.
Did they calculate how much additional gasoline will be burned with two new signaled intersections.

And OF COURSE they keep the bike lanes. How much cost is that adding to the project? SOCIALIST HANDOUT TO BIG CYCLING. That's Obama's America.
My shovel is sharp, my pick is sharp, and my will is outstanding.
They have been working on this for so long
Where do I get one of them hover cars?
You're in college. The window of opportunity to drink and do drugs and take advantage of young girls is getting smaller by the day.
Traffic circles also pose a danger to those who are visually handicapped. Lights allow for the famous, "walk sign is on to cross RED CEDAR" type alerts.
You do realize it's Shaw Lane right?
I always liked how Wilson Road looked in the summer. Shaw in that area is going to feel like that now. What I would do to be back at MSU.
Make sure you duck under the lights durring the drive thru portion. I didnt duck on the first drive thru and got a good whollup on my noggin.
The indoctrinated will no longer be able to deny it, only defend it.
Nice vid but they should have had a cop pulling someone over to make it more realistic.
Exactly. One yellow Camaro hovercar, please. maybe by 2015.
