Project Description

The City of Kamloops retained Watt Consulting to develop a functional design concept for a roundabout at the intersection of Highland Road / Valleyview Drive. A previous study identified the intersection as a priority location for a single-lane roundabout. Watt conducted a traffic analysis using SIDRA 7 and determined that a mixed-lane roundabout would be needed with a variety of single- and dual-lane approaches and departures. A functional design was then developed based on truck, transit, and fire truck design vehicle movements in the roundabout. Existing cycling facility connections were facilitated with the addition of bicycle ramps and widened sidewalks. This approach moves cyclists out of the vehicular conflict zones to a combined pedestrian and cycling facility.

Client: City of Kamloops
