Congestion




The SR 167 HOT Lanes Pilot Project helps fight congestion and makes the existing HOV lanes more efficient with a innovative tool called variable tolling.

WSDOT is reducing traffic congestion, preserving transportation infrastructure and making safer roadways.

Managing traffic congestion is critical for the future Washington families and our economy. Moving Washington is WSDOT’s program of investments and priorities to keep the state moving through the next decade and beyond.

The program integrates strategic approaches for adding new highway space with the latest in technology to make our roadways more efficient and safer. It also provides new choices for commuters to better distribute the demand placed on our most burdened bridges and highways.

  • Add capacity strategically
  • Operate efficiently
  • Manage demand

Over the next 10 years Moving Washington can improve travel times by 10 percent, reduce collisions by 25 percent, improve trip reliability by 10 percent and provide more choices for commuters in our major corridors.
