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.
