I read that the average roundabout costs $200,000. How is it that a roundabout has less cement than the amount in a foundation or in a driveway - and has no roof, no electricity, no drywall, no paint, no carpet - but can cost as much as a fairly expensive house?

David Woosley, the city's traffic engineer, said roundabout costs ranged from $56,000 to $328,000, depending on the location and specific needs. He said that compared favorably with the costs of traffic signals, which begin around $150,000 and can exceed $750,000.
