The project is located at the intersections of SR 202 & SE Tokul Road, and SR 202 & SE Mill Pond Road. The Tokul Road Roundabout improves safety of existing traffic by eliminating these two intersections that do not meet current safety standards. This roadway is heavily utilized by trucks traveling from SR 202 to the sand and gravel mine located in unincorporated King County as well as nearly 2 million visitors annually traveling to Snoqualmie Falls.
