Members of the community are invited to an open house to learn about a project that will bring a roundabout to Raymond in order to help keep traffic moving safely at the intersection of US 101 and State Route 6.
The Washington State Department of Transportation plans to replace the aging stoplight at the intersection with a modern roundabout that “will improve safety and reduce the long-term maintenance costs.”
“Roundabouts are proven to reduce the severity of collisions and keep traffic moving– even in the event of a power outage, which can happen frequently at this intersection,” said WSDOT Project Engineer Devin Reck. “This strategic investment will also eliminate our need to spend time and money to service these signals.”
