WSDOT must purchase specific properties along the I-5/SR 509 corridors to provide room for the planned improvements. The project is using $30 million provided by the Nickel Funding Package, as well as $24 million provided by the Transportation Partnership Act, to purchase property for right of way. Much more funding is needed to acquire all the property necessary for the project.
