Snohomish’s roundabout moving forward
SNOHOMISH - The plan to build a traffic roundabout at Avenue D and 15th Street is gaining momentum as the city will seek bids from construction companies later this month.
Construction is expected to start later this year.
The project converts a five-way stop at 15th Street and Avenue D into a free flowing roundabout. During rush hour, this intersection becomes a congestion spot.
Public works director Steve Schuller anticipates the City Council will decide the winning contractor in mid-March.
This past fall and winter, the design plans were finalized and sent to the granting agencies that gave money to the project. Design engineering company Reid Middleton was hired to produce the conceptual design of the roundabout, which was presented at a public presentation last June.
The timeline for the roundabout began two or three years ago.
The city was awarded $1.52 million in state and federal grants for the $1.82 million project.
The city’s taxpayer-financed Transportation Benefit District will fund local matching dollars of approximately $300,000 toward the project cost.
The project is part of District’s 2014 Capital Improvement Projects list. This year’s other big project is widening 30th Street. Design work on the widening will start this year.
The city also plans to repave Second Street from Avenue H to Cedar Street using Transportation Benefit District dollars.
