The project proposes improvements to the existing skewed intersection of S.R. 0519 and S.R. 1055 (a.k.a. Brownlee Road, to the south, and Thomas Eighty Four Road, to the west), located in North Strabane Township, Washington County. The proposed improvement includes the reconstruction of the skewed intersection to provide dual roundabouts. Several other roundabout configurations were considered as well as a more traditional dual signalized intersection. However, the proposed dual roundabout option best addresses the project needs by achieving the highest level of service and capacity for current and design year conditions, best addresses issues of route continuity and safety, reduces environmental and property impacts, operates at a lower and safer design speed, and has a lower initial cost as well as future maintenance costs.
