Construction begins on first roundabout in Clallam county

Traffic measure at Woodcock Road, Sequim-Dungeness Way

SEQUIM — Construction has started at the corner of Woodcock Road and Sequim-Dungeness Way on unincorporated Clallam County’s first roundabout.

Crews with Interwest Construction began work just east of the planned 160-foot roundabout on Monday, with Clallam County roads staff previously saying traffic will move to one side or the other as construction progresses with no long-term traffic delays anticipated.

Nick Dostie, project engineer and lead inspector, said work will run tentatively 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday through April 14.

The project could finish sooner or be delayed depending on weather and/or COVID-19 conditions, he said.

Interwest’s contract was agreed upon by Clallam County commissioners for up to $869,000 with funding covered by federal and state grants.

Commissioners approved a roundabout in 2019 to reduce traffic collisions.

A proposal to install a traffic light was estimated to cost about $4 million, so county officials opted for the roundabout.
