[ARCHIVED] North Vine Corridor - 32nd/33rd Roundabout

32nd/33rd Roundabout Traffic Movements

By the end of this week, Saturday, December 5th, the roundabout at the intersection of Vine Street with 32nd and 33rd Streets will become fully functional.  While the roundabout will be substantially complete, there will continue to be construction of sidewalks and other improvements along the sides of the streets.  Therefore, motorists still need to use caution driving through this area.

The project webpage has several videos to assist motorists in learning how to navigate a roundabout, and there are diagrams showing the particulars of navigating the hour-glass shaped roundabout at the 32nd and 33rd Street intersection.  Here are a few tips to remember:

  • Slow down when approaching the roundabout (advisory speed is 25 mph).
  • Choose the correct lane
    • If you are making a right turn (in other words exiting at the first side street) be in the outside lane.
    • If continuing through (north or south on Vine), you can be in either lane.
    •  If you are making a left turn (in other words NB Vine to WB 32nd or SB Vine to EB 33rd) be in the inside lane.
    • If you need to make a U-turn to head back in the direction you came from, be in the inside lane.
  • Look left before entering the roundabout and yield to motorists in the roundabout.
  • Don’t stop once in the roundabout (except to avoid an accident). Motorists in the roundabout have the right of way.
  • Use your turn signal indicators to indicate a right turn onto 32nd or 33rd Street or a left turn crossing over to the east or west side of the roundabout.
  • Avoid driving next to oversized vehicles negotiating the roundabout.

Questions may be directed to the contractor, Smoky Hill Construction, by emailing, accessing the project page on the City of Hays website, or contacting the Office of Project Management at 785 628-7350.
