Budget Information

US 101 - SR 6 Intersection Improvements

Status

June 2017

  • 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.
