Traffic on state Highway 14 will shift to a temporary roundabout at 32nd Street as construction continues on two roundabouts in Washougal.
Using a temporary roundabout will minimize delays and move traffic more efficiently than a temporary traffic signal. It also will allow the permanent roundabout to be built without closing Highway 14.
From 7 p.m. Sunday until 7 a.m. Monday, drivers can expect to alternate through a single lane, with flaggers, at the intersection of Highway 14 and 32nd Street. Beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, all traffic will use the temporary roundabout for about five weeks.
This work is weather dependent and could be delayed.
The temporary roundabout will be built on the south side of Highway 14 and will be much smaller than the permanent roundabout. It will include curbing, striping and pavement markers to guide drivers.
Large permitted truck loads on Highway 14 can drive through the roundabout, but there will be some turn restrictions.
Drivers from 32nd Street southbound turning right onto Highway 14 westbound will need to yield to highway traffic.
