SR 702 8th Avenue South Roundabout Pre-Design Study

Planning study news

The SR 702 pre-design study is now complete. Thank you for participating in the online open house that was held August 24 to September 7. This funded project is now turned over to WSDOT's Tumwater Project Engineer's Office for design.

June - August 2021


WSDOT is replacing the existing two-way stop at the intersection of State Route 702 and 8th Avenue South with a modern roundabout. The intersection currently has stop control on the northbound and southbound legs, and a span wire mounted, four-head flashing beacon. This project will remove the stop signs and beacon system and provide new intersection control with a roundabout that fits within the intersection footprint.
