County P/County PV Roundabout West Bend, WI

South of West Bend, Wis. on County P are the Washington County Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds are just northwest of the County P and County PV intersection which required improvement to safety and greater peak-event traffic capacity.

The existing four-way stop condition was compared to traffic signals and a roundabout. After analysis, raSmith recommended the safety benefits and greater traffic efficiency of a one-lane roundabout. A commercial development at the southwest corner of the intersection was accommodated to minimize impact on the business’s parking area. A Rodel traffic analysis was completed as were geometric layout, pavement marking, vertical design, public involvement meetings, design study report, environmental documentation and preliminary and final plan production and documentation.
