It’s Roundabout Time for Loon Lake

Whether it causes you to cheer or cringe, another roundabout is coming to 395. This one will be placed at the intersection of Highway 395 and State Route 292/Gardenspot Road in Loon Lake.  

The intersection of 395 and 292, often referred to as Four-Corners by locals, is no stranger to bad collisions; a problem that only worsens as summer vacation and the associated traffic descends on the area. Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) performed a safety analysis and determined a compact roundabout would aid the location. This road modification will be similar to those added to 395 by Deer Park.  

In addition to the roundabout there will be about twelve miles of repaving work being done from Four-Corners north to Hafer Road. According to WSDOT the project as a whole is anticipated to begin in mid-July and estimate the work to be complete by early October.

This is your friendly reminder to take your time this summer, watch out for road crews and everyone’s families on the road.
