We are designing roundabouts to improve safety and traffic flow at the SR 92 intersections with 99th Avenue N.E. and 113th Avenue N.E. in Lake Stevens.
Why is WSDOT
building roundabouts at the SR 92 intersections with 99th Avenue N.E. and 113th Avenue N.E.?
We will build two single-lane roundabouts on SR 92 - one at the intersection of SR 92 and 99th Avenue N.E. and one at the SR 92 and 113th Avenue N.E. in Lake Stevens. The roundabouts will improve traffic flow and help reduce the risk of serious collisions.
About 21,000 vehicles use SR 92 near 99th Avenue N.E. each day, and 16,500 vehicles each day travel near the 113th Avenue N.E. intersection.
The SR 92/99th Avenue N.E. intersection was the site of 17 collisions from 2006 to 2010, including five injury collisions. There were two rear-end collisions and 12 collisions involving drivers entering SR 92 from 99th Avenue N.E.
The SR 92/113th Avenue N.E. intersection was the site of 25 collisions from 2006 to 2010, including two injury and one serious injury collisions. There were 12 rear-end collisions and nine collisions involving drivers entering SR 92 from 113th Avenue N.E.
The End Result
Drivers will benefit from a smoother flow of traffic and a reduced risk of serious collisions on SR 92 through Lake Stevens. Roundabouts are designed to make intersections safer and more efficient for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. Roundabouts have been proven to significantly reduce the risk of injury collisions. Learn more about roundabouts and their benefits.
Roundabouts help reduce the likelihood and severity of collisions:
- Low travel speeds – Drivers must slow down and yield to traffic before entering a roundabout. Travel speeds in a roundabout are typically between 15 and 20 miles per hour. The few collisions that occur in roundabouts are typically minor and cause few injuries since they occur at such low speeds.
- No light to beat – Roundabouts are designed to promote a continuous, circular flow of traffic. Drivers need only yield to traffic before entering a roundabout; if there is no traffic in the roundabout, drivers are not required to stop. Because traffic is constantly flowing through the intersection, drivers don't have the incentive to speed up to try and "beat the light," like they might at a traditional intersection.
- One-way travel – Roads entering a roundabout are gently curved to direct drivers into the intersection and help them travel counterclockwise around the roundabout. The curved roads and one-way travel around the roundabout reduce the risk of T-bone and head-on collisions.
