The worst road construction idea ever

From the Star Tribune regarding the rebuilding of 494 and 169 last Thursday:

Hwy. 169 will be reconstructed this year, together with a new bridge for local traffic. Some of the six roundabouts planned will be in use this year.

Are you freaking kidding me? If there is any way to make an intersection more confusing for American drivers, it's by introducing a roundabout. If there is a way to cause complete and utter destruction at a major metropolitan interchange, then put SIX at the interchange between an interstate and a US highway? Awesome. Rush hour in the southwest metro is going to be fantastic.
