OTHELLO – The Washington State Department of Transportation has selected a contractor to construct safety improvements to the intersection at SR 24 and Bench Road just south of the city of Othello.

WSDOT will host an open house Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020, to share details on a new roundabout where the current four-legged intersection is located. The contractor, Cameron-Reilly, LLC, will begin work Feb. 11, 2020 and close down the intersection for three days. A longer closure will occur in March through April to complete the construction of the roundabout at that location.
