I realize that with some folks, roundabouts are about as popular as sidewalks. If you hate these circular interchanges, however, don’t blame the city of Janesville for the decision to install two of them when the Interstate 90/39 intersection with Racine Street is rebuilt this year. This was a state Department of Transportation decision, which came after public hearings last year.

You can read more about it from reporter Marcia Nelesen's story that appeared in last Saturday's Gazette. So does the decision deserve applause or disparagement?

We’ll share our perspectives in our editorial Sunday.
