(New) SR 243 (MP 13.5-14) Mattawa Intersection Improvements
Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., expect flagger controlled traffic through the intersection where a crew is installing additional curbing around the edges of the roundabout to prevent rocks from being kicked up onto the roadway. Four traffic arrows are being replaced inside the roundabout as well. This work may take more than one week to complete.
In this $1.25 million project, West Co. crews built a single lane roundabout at the intersection of SR 243 and Road 24 SW, adding sidewalks and new lighting. Work began April 11 and was complete June 27.
