Comment on the Farmington and River Roads Intersection through Aug. 29
Comment on the proposed improvement design for the Farmington and River roads intersection at an online open house through Aug. 29.

This intersection of two heavily traveled roads is currently controlled with stop signs. Travelers experience long waits during peak commuting times.

An off-center roundabout, southwest of the current intersection, was selected based on results from a traffic study and public comments received during the 2020 online open house.

Visit the Farmington and River Roads Intersection Open House to learn more, leave comments or ask questions. Contact Capital Project Services at 503-846-7800 or lutproj@co.washington.or.us for more information.
