BESH was the Engineer of Record and handled the survey, permitting, roundabout design and project management. This project was funded through a Federal Safety Grant and Local Agency Project (LAP) program.

Prior to the roundabout, the intersection had a 61% higher crash rate than the Florida state average. Since it opened in June of 2015 there have been no reported accidents.

The roundabout project has been so successful that it is being referenced by FDOT District V to other agencies considering roundabouts in rural areas.
