New roundabout comes in for a landing at SR 20 on Whidbey Island

Ever wonder how a roundabout gets constructed?  Well wonder no more!

Favorable weather and some outstanding work by contractors allowed a new roundabout on SR 20 near Oak Harbor to open this past Sunday, 10 days ahead of schedule! Here’s a time lapse look at the work over a little more than two weeks to get the roundabout done and open to traffic. The blog explains why a roundabout in this location makes sense, and provides some reminders for those who still aren’t sure how to maneuver through them.
