SR 150 - No See-Um Road Intersection Improvements

Status

October, 2017

Construction began April 17 and may be complete as early as Thanksgiving.

10/16-20 - Traffic impacts will increase as the crews grind off the existing pavement between town and the roundabout. We should be able to keep delays to less than 20 minutes. We are also finishing up the grading and utility work on the new No See Um Rd. tying it into the roundabout and installing curb and gutter along the highway. Paving is currently planned for the following week although could slide a week depending on how the construction progresses. Weather could become a significant factor as it cools off and we see some rain move in.

Check the "Construction Phases" link in the left column for the project's timeline and traffic plan.


The legislature's 2015 "Connecting Washington" revenue package included $6.5 Million in final design, right of way and construction funding to build a roundabout at the SR 150/NoSeeUm Rd. intersection on the north shore of Lake Chelan.

 

This I-2 Highway Capital Improvement Program Collision Prevention Safety Project would construct improvements to the intersection of SR 150 and No See-Um Road between Manson and Chelan.

Why is WSDOT improving this intersection?
Even with hundreds of yet-to-be-developed residential lots that will be accessed through this intersection, the current average traffic count has already risen to 10,000 vehicles per day. These volumes are producing more and longer delays for side-road traffic - the result of the lack of gaps to turn onto the highway. Faced with these conditions, drivers are sometimes making decisions that result in a collision or a near miss. 

The proposed roundabout is to reduce collisions, delays and improve bicycle and pedestrian mobility and access to Lake Chelan. 


The End Result
A new intersection to accommodate higher traffic volumes while reducing the potential for serious collisions.

Project Benefits

  • Reduced potential for serious collisions and improved traffic flow
  • Better motorist information from new signs and striping
  • Extended roadway life with new pavement
  • Reduced maintenance costs 

What is the project timeline?
The 2015 Connecting Washington budget includes $6.5 Million for design, acquisition of right of way and construction of the roundabout.
The project is expected to require 400 work days to complete.  Work began in April of 2017 with final completion in 2018.
