US 395 - Deer Park Corridor Safety Improvements - Roundabouts

Project news

  • The Contract was awarded to Inland Asphalt Paving on May 2nd with a bid of $2,959,959.
  • WSDOT held an Open House at Deer Park City Hall on June 7 to update the residents on the schedule and traffic considerations during construction.

Needs & Benefits

Intersections in the Deer Park area experience a higher than average number of "entering at angle" collisions. These are crashes where drivers enter the roadway into the path of oncoming vehicles.  This project entails construction of single lane roundabouts at the Short/Main and Monroe/Crawford intersections in Deer Park, WA.  Turning modifications will be built at the Burroughs/Dalton intersection.  Roundabouts should reduce the frequency and severity of "entering at angle" collisions at these locations.

More information can be found on the US 395 - Deer Park Intersection Improvement Study page.

Timeline

No lane closures will be allowed on US 395, Monday through Friday, between 6am and 9am nor between 3pm and 6pm.  These restrictions include through the two new roundabouts.  Motorists should expect construction delays outside of these times.

No Traffic Restrictions will be allowed over the Labor Day holiday weekend: Friday, August 31st at noon until Tuesday, September 4th at 9am.

Progress Main/Short and Monroe/Crawford Roundabouts: The roundabouts are fully operational for all four legs of traffic. Remaining work includes permanent illumination, signing, and striping, and slope rehabilitation. Flagging traffic control operations may be necessary to direct one-lane, two-way traffic through the roundabouts.

Progress Burroughs/Dalton:  Access to and from US 395 at Burroughs Rd is permanently closed. Traffic may access US 395 by traveling north on Short Rd to the new roundabout. The only access to and from US 395 at Dalton Rd is for northbound traffic to Dalton Rd. This revision is permanent as well. Remaining work includes permanent striping and slope rehabilitation.
