Pullman’s First Roundabout Opens-Construction Of 2nd Roundabout On North Grand Avenue Running Further Behind Schedule

Pullman’s first roundabout is complete.

The city project to construct a roundabout at Terre View Drive and North Fairway Road near the Washington State University golf course was completed ahead of schedule.  The city hired local contractor Motley and Motley to build the traffic circle.  A grant from the state department of transportation helped pay for the roundabout.

Construction of Pullman’s second roundabout is apparently running further behind schedule.  The private development company called Aspen Heights out of Texas is building the roundabout at North Grand Avenue and Albion Road on the North end of town.  The firm was required to build the traffic circle to accommodate increased traffic from its student housing development that’s going up nearby.

The city announced a month ago that the project was a month behind schedule and should be completed by mid-August before the start of the fall semester at WSU.  City officials don’t know when the roundabout will be complete.  The semester starts on Monday.  Aspen Heights is running two months behind on opening its student housing development.
