Odds are the traffic circle turnaround will just use the loop to turn around with the actual stop a little west of the circle. It's a great facility for short-turning in the event of line problems east/west following the expansion to Eastgate (assuming that transpires in the 2020/30s).

For transit connections, I wouldn't be too shocked if they acquire property to the south of the circle (such as the car dealership) for a transit interchange. The hydro corridor north of the circle looks like a great route for transfer to a north-end yard & connection to a parallel Barton line down the road if demand justifies it, although a yard to the west of Mac's campus (currently a ton of surface parking) could also be an option.

It'll be interesting to see how everything shakes out in the coming years!
