City of Woodland
2014-2015; built in 2015
SCJ managed the design of a new roundabout at the intersection of SR 503 (Lewis River Road) and Scott Avenue. The project included an alternatives analysis and preparation of an Intersection Control Analysis report.
The work showed a single-lane roundabout was the preferred intersection type. Improvements included pavement reconstruction, sidewalks, stormwater, water, sewer, illumination, utility relocation, landscaping, and a sculpture structure in the roundabout central island.
The project was funded by Transportation Improvement Board grants and included approval through WSDOT for work on a state route. Services included a SEPA Checklist, a cultural report per Executive Order 05-05, and a shoreline permit.
“This project is a big benefit for the community in the northeast part of the city. The roundabout works much better than the old stop sign. The roundabout creates a sense of place with the adjacent country store and it provides a great gateway entry, from residential areas to the north to commercial areas to the south.”
