E Smith Rd & Hannegan Rd Intersection Improvements

E. Smith.Hannegan Map

Project Update on August 20, 2018


The double lane roundabout was the professionally recommended intersection improvement alternative by our design consultant and the County's Engineering Division. The 2-lane roundabout will be proposed to County Council for approval as part of our 6-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The 6-year TIP will be introduced during the Public Works Committee meeting during the day on September 11th, 2018. There will then be a Public Hearing and a Council vote for adoption of the 6-year TIP at the evening council meeting on September 25th, 2018. Please check the Council Agenda on the County Website at: http://www.whatcomcounty.us/2723/2018-Agendas-Action-Taken-Minutes-and-Au several days before each council meeting to be sure there are no changes in time or agenda.

The intersection of East Smith and Hannegan Roads is located in Sections 28, 29, 32 and 33, T39N, R3E. This intersection currently experiences delays due to the lack of left-turn channelization on Smith Road. Proposed improvements would address operation and efficiency of the entire intersection.
