SR 302 Roundabout Pre-Design Study


Improvements are coming to SR 302 at 118th Avenue Northwest intersection near Minter Creek.

WSDOT routinely reviews rural intersections on the state highway system to find ways to reduce potential crashes. A safety plan is developed to reduce crash potential and ways to reduce operating speed and conflict points. This project will construct a single-lane roundabout on SR 302 at the 118th Avenue Northwest intersection near Minter Creek.

This roundabout fits within the existing intersection pavement footprint. Construction is scheduled for summer of 2024. The pre-design study will examine the replacement of stop signs with a single-lane roundabout.

The single-lane roundabout features two sections to accommodate the off-set side streets on 118th Avenue Northwest. Both roundabout sections feature center islands with raised and drivable surfaces, which larger vehicles can drive over as needed. This allows the roundabout to accommodate vehicles of all sizes.

The speed limit on SR 302 is 45 mph with a reduction to 40 mph at the 118th Avenue Northwest intersection. Pedestrian volumes are currently low along SR 302. The closest transit stop is 4.6 miles away at the Purdy Park and Ride lot. SR 302 features paved shoulders for bicyclists. The design phase will take a closer look at these factors.

This online open house, available from xxxxxx, June xx through xxxxxx, June xx, will allow you to become familiar with the project. We also encourage you to ask questions and provide comments after you have had some time to explore the information provided.
