According to the agenda for their meeting on April 6, 2015, Ferndale City Council will be asked to approve awarding the design of the roundabout to be constructed at the intersection of LaBounty Drive and Main Street to Lynden engineering firm, Reichhardt & Ebe Engineering, Inc.
Stated in the agenda’s supporting documents:
- “The City’s Planned Action Master Plan calls for the construction of a roundabout at this intersection”
- “analysis indicated that a roundabout will handle the traffic flow in that intersection over the next 20 years.”
- “The City’s adopted Transportation Element […] also includes this project as a “high” need.”
- “Due to the high ADT [average daily traffic], existing traffic signal, and proximity to I-5, it is assumed that the construction work will be staged and/or phased so that the road remains open to traffic during construction.”
