The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Board should consider roundabout decision


September 21, 2017

To The Eagle:

To be against the idea of roundabouts just because one doesn't like them is not keeping the best interests of the community in mind. These traffic safety structures provide a practical way to slow traffic while including nice highway landscaping.

As for our local truckers, most have no objection. Those who have used the Warrenton roundabout find traffic there easy to deal with. At least 10 times as many log trucks use that facility there as compared to here on SR 4. The Port of Astoria Log Shipping Yard is right there.

Have you ever heard of someone being "T-boned at a roundabout?

A very important aspect is the impact to the local economy; $5 million dollars being spent here would add more revenue to almost all our businesses.
