This project is in the early stages of preliminary engineering
The city of Battle Ground is seeking the community’s input on the future improvements to the intersection of SR 503 and NW Onsdorff Boulevard.
This project is in the early stages of preliminary engineering. A signal and a roundabout option will be analyzed as the potential intersection improvement alternatives per Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) requirements.
As the city attempts to continually improve its overall transportation network and develop it in the long term, officials state that they want to be sure that this intersection improvement project meets the needs of that network and is suited to the community’s needs. The city encourages the community to take part in this project survey, to help develop the project design.
Respondents will be asked to provide information on their travel habits, including the day, time(s), and frequency by which they travel this intersection, as well as modes of transportation they use when doing so. This survey data, along with other data sources, will be used to gauge the use and predict future needs for this project. Additionally, this will help guide the design recommendations to be considered by the city and WSDOT.
The public comment period for this phase of the project is open now through November 30, 2023.
Further information about the project as well as a link to the online survey is available at www.cityofbg.org/503-Onsdorff. To receive and submit a paper copy of the survey, residents can visit the customer service desk in City Hall, located at 109 SW 1st Street. The customer service desk is open 9 a.m.–5 p.m. (Mon, Wed, Fri) and 8 a.m.-1 p.m. (Tue, Thu).
