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 is 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 - May 2018

Accomplishments:  Completed redesign of the project after it was decided to change it  from a dual lane RAB to a hybrid RAB.  60% design complete.  3 of the 4 parcels, the property rights have been secured.  4th parcel is in agreement but has not yet closed.  Permits nearly complete including provisions for the wetland impacts.

Next Milestone:  Should be advertising the project this year for construction.  Private utilities may have issues with the interpretation of the franchise agreements.   Not likely to pave this year.
