WHPacific was responsible for developing preliminary and final designs for a new roundabout at the intersection of SR 903 and Bullfrog Road. As the Suncadia Resort and other adjacent properties develop, traffic volumes through this intersection are anticipated to significantly increase. The roundabout improvements were constructed as part of a development agreement between the resort developer and Kittitas County.
The project accommodates future traffic volumes, improves safety, provides traffic calming, and provides better pedestrian and bicycle facilities. The roundabout project improvements included a realignment of Bullfrog Road and SR 903, sidewalks on both sides of the roadway, concrete curbs and gutters, channelization, signing, illumination, landscaping, relocation of existing utilities, and a storm drainage system with water quality facilities. The design required close coordination with the Washington State Department of Transportation, Kittitas County, utility owners, and adjacent property owners.
