- Project will be advertised for construction in May 2017
Why is WSDOT
replacing the existing traffic signal with a roundabout?
The existing signal at the intersection of US 101 and State Route 6 is at the end of its useful life. Due to its age and corrosion from the salt air, the signal system needs frequent maintenance. Instead of replacing the signal, the Washington State Department of Transportation will build a roundabout that will keep traffic moving safely through the intersection and reduce long-term maintenance needs.
The End Result
Improved safety and traffic flow with reduced long-term maintenance needs.
- Safety – Roundabouts reduce the types of crashes where people are seriously injured
- Better traffic flow – No unnecessary stopping or red light to beat
- Saves money – Reduced maintenance and repairs costs
- Accommodates all vehicles - Including freight and log trucks
- Better for pedestrians - Shorter crossing distances

- Advertise project for competitive bid – Spring 2017
