SR 530/Smokey Pt Blvd Temporary Signal Replacement

Project Description

In the fall of 2019 the City of Arlington placed a temporary traffic signal at the intersection of SR-530 and Smokey Point Boulevard.  The city will now be replacing the temporary signal system with a wood pole span wire signal.   This span wire signal system will remain as the City continues to work with WSDOT and stakeholders on the long-term solution of the installation of a roundabout.   The City is looking to construct the roundabout once funding is secured for the project.
