December 7 open house scheduled for proposed roundabout or traffic signal at north end of town

Banks – City and county officials will hold an open house for a proposed project to replace the Main Street/Banks Road/Cedar Canyon Road intersection on Thursday, December 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Banks Fire Station at 300 S. Main Street.

According to the project website, there are currently two design proposals. One would replace the current stop signs with a traffic signal; another design would replace the intersection with a roundabout – which, if built, would be the first roundabout within Banks city limits.

According to a media release from Washington County Land Use and Transportation (LUT), staff will be available to discuss aspects of the project, which include changes to the intersection, the proposed Salmonberry Trail, and east Banks expansion.

Maps, exhibits, and project concept drawings will be on display at the open house and interested attendees can drop by any time between 5 and 7 p.m. There is no formal presentation planned, according to Washington County LUT.
