Travelers should allow extra travel time and stay alert as U.S. Highway 395 traffic shifts onto a new temporary bypass on June 21 as part of ongoing roundabout construction.
Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation are building single-land roundabouts the highway’s Short/Main and Monroe/Crawford intersections. Crews are also making turn modifications at the Burroughs/Dalton intersection that restrict some U.S. 395 access.
The roundabouts are designed to reduce the frequency and severity of "entering at angle" collisions at these locations.
Work on the temporary Short/Main Street bypass is underway. Starting on June 21, highway traffic will be shifted onto the bypass. Once the shift takes place, the highway speed will be reduced to an advisory 25 mph; the highway’s Main Street intersection at will be reopened for northbound off- and on- access only; and access to and from U.S. 395 at Short Road will be closed.
Businesses will remain open along Short Road and Main Street.
Revisions will stay in place until the roundabout opens to traffic in mid-July
The roundabout work takes place Mondays through Saturdays. Travelers should expect construction delays between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. during those days and evenings after 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. the following day.
