We will build two compact roundabouts on SR 530 at the intersections of 59th Avenue Northeast and 211th Place Northeast, just west of Arlington.
SR 530 is a heavily traveled highway with commuters, large trucks, farm equipment and travelers sharing the highway to reach destination including the Cascade Mountains.
Adding compact roundabouts will reduce the risk of serious collisions at these intersections because drivers will no longer have to make turns across lanes of fast-moving traffic.
What to expect
When construction begins in spring 2023, highway users can expect several weekend closures of the highway in both directions to build and open the roundabouts. Single lane and shoulder closures on SR 530, 59th Avenue Northeast and 211th Place Northeast will also be required. Additional information about closures and when they will occur will be available in spring-summer 2023 after a contractor is selected.
This map shows SR 530 and the intersections of 59th Avenue Northeast and 211th Place Northeast where two compact roundabouts will be installed.
