WASHOUGAL – Community members are invited to an open house Wednesday, Feb. 22, to learn about current design options to improve safety, connectivity and economic development along the State Route 14 corridor through Washougal.
Based on community input from a well-attended open house in October and more than 400 online survey responses, the Washington State Department of Transportation has narrowed down the feasible design options.
“The community overwhelmingly agrees that safety, access to SR 14 and reliable travel are their highest priorities,” said WSDOT Project Engineer Lori Figone. “Based on their input, traffic data and funding, roundabouts at 15th Street and 32nd Street are the most effective options.”
Open house information
There is no formal presentation. During the open house, WSDOT staff will discuss design options, seek community input and answer questions.
Washougal city representatives will also be on hand to discuss construction of a new trail along South A Street to Steamboat Landing Park, as well as their transportation and infrastructure study of the Town Center.
Preferred designs will be presented later this year.
This project is funded by the Connecting Washington transportation package to improve safety, economic development and mobility. Construction is scheduled to being in summer 2019.
