SR 162 Orville Road Pre-design Study

Planning study news

The pre-design study for the intersection of SR 162 at Orville Road East has completed data collection and analysis work and is currently preparing the recommended improvement in collaboration with local agencies, tribal governments and community members. Thank you for taking the time to participate in the online open house held February 1 through 15 to review the proposed concept and provide input.

Status

Budget
The design and construction costs range from $2 million and $3 million for the single lane roundabout. Costs are planning level estimates.

Purpose

WSDOT routinely reviews rural intersections on the state highway system to find ways to reduce potential crashes. We look for locations that are at the highest risk for severe crashes. During this pre-design, we will conduct traffic and crash analysis, working with the community to develop the proposed recommendation.
