The Roundabout

This roundabout in New Kent, Virginia, clearly awaits better times. All those US Americans hate roundabouts, calling them “death traps” and worse. However, this one was mandated by the Virginia general assembly, and that means it has to be built – even if it connects to nothing.

The roundabout, along with its more-connected sisters, can be seen at the 3:16 mark in the video below (which is actually how I first found it).

Visit date: Google Maps: march 14, 2014
Status at last visit: Roundabout with four connecting road, only two of which lead anywhere.
Current status: unknown. But Google Street view (feb 2014) shows that there is nearby construction activity, meaning a subdivision will probably be built soon.
