The public is advised that the intersection of Spring Street and Argyle Avenue will be closed to all traffic day and night for four days beginning May 7th for the installation of an intersection roundabout. This closure will include Spring Street from Second Street to Argyle Avenue. There may be times when access to Nichols Street and the Wells Fargo parking lot may be restricted.


All businesses will remain open and vehicle access to the gas pumps will be maintained. The Town asks for the community’s patience and offers assurance that every effort will be made to limit the inconvenience to the public while this traffic improvement is under construction.

The roundabout is expected to limit potential hazards and driver frustration in this awkward intersection, according to Town Administrator Duncan Wilson. “Studies have indicated that roundabouts can be safer and more efficient than stop signs or traffic lights,” said Wilson, adding that this will also give drivers an alternative to circling the block to regain access to lower Spring Street.

The Town opted to install a mini roundabout that is painted rather than a permanent raised island due to the lower cost and space limitations.

Construction will include installation of a painted traffic circle, directional signage, crosswalks, and yield signs. A drawing of the intersection and links to information on traffic roundabouts may be found on the Town’s website at www.fridayharbor.org. Questions regarding the project should be directed to Public Works Director Wayne Haefele at (360)378-2154 or wayneh@fridayharbor.org.
