Construction begins on new US 395 roundabout near Loon Lake

LOON LAKE, Wash. – Construction on a new roundabout is underway on US 395 in Loon Lake. 

Washington State Department of Transportation crews will also pave 12 miles of the highway between Loon Lake and Hafer Road. 

This section of US 395 was last paved in 2009 and is part of an international shipping route between the US and Canada. 

The new roundabout is set to improve traffic flow and safety at the “Four Corners” intersection of SR 292 and US 395. A roundabout was chosen to improve safety based on a history of crashes at the intersection. 

Here’s what to expect during construction: 

  • Overnight single-lane closures on US 395 from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday.
  • Travelers should expect delays up to 20 minutes during the paving portion of the project.
  • Drivers will be guided through the work zone via pilot car.
  • Access to the intersection at SR 292 and US 395 will be restricted for 15 days while crews work to construct a roundabout near Loon Lake. Drivers will be redirected through the work zone during the four stages of the project.
  • No lane closures will be in place during the Labor Day holiday weekend.
