Cordata / Stuart Roundabout

​Project Overview:  ES-0530

 Multimodal roundabout at the intersection of Cordata and Stuart.  Cordata Parkway is the major north-south secondary arterial through the Cordata Neighborhood and Stuart Road provides east-west access to Whatcom Community College.  Development was proposed on all four corners and the Parks Department purchased 27 acres for a regional park on the northeast side of this intersection.  Increasing traffic volumes will make northbound left-turns difficult, create vehicle queues and block access to Whatcom Community College and residential driveways.  A multimodal roundabout will slow vehicles, reduce collisions and improve safety for all transportation users, while also providing long-term transportation capacity, as the Cordata Neighborhood continues to develop over time.

Status - April 2019

Accomplishments:  Project has been designed, permitted and bid. (Completed redesign of the project after it was decided to change it  from a dual lane RAB to a hybrid RAB.) Four essential parcels acquired.  Permits including provisions for the wetland impacts. Construction is underway.

Next Milestone:  Construction should be completed by the end of April 2019.
