City of North Bend Awarded Grant for New Downtown Roundabout

Park St. Roundabout plan
The City of North Bend announced they have been awarded a $1 million grant from Puget Sound Regional Council for a new roundabout at North Bend Way and Park Street. The roundabout is slated to begin installation in the summer of 2018.

The roundabout will create better and safer travel through downtown as well as improved access to businesses and driveways along the downtown corridor.

The project is listed as the number one priority in the Council’s latest draft of the 2018-2023 Transportation Plan, which was approved during the June 21, 2016 City Council meeting. The Transportation Plan is the plan the City Council uses to prioritize funding for transportation projects.

“This is very exciting news for citizens, tourists and business owners as it means safer and more efficient travel through our downtown,” Mayor Ken Hearing said. “Originally, the roundabout was planned to begin installation in early 2019. However, City Council re-prioritized the project from number four on the list of transportation projects to number one to support our community’s needs.”

The roundabout will feature a landscaped center island, ADA compliant sidewalks and shared use trails and connections. It will also feature a new lighting system, planting of street trees and permanent signage.
