Why is WSDOT
reconstructing the I-5 and SR 510 interchange in Lacey?
WSDOT is accommodating planned regional growth adjacent to the interchange. Traffic modeling shows that a Diverging Diamond Interchange, the first of its kind in the state, will accommodate future growth in the area.
The End Result
The improvements will accommodate economic development for the Hawks Prairie community. This project will expand on previous improvements that have been implemented by the City of Lacey and WSDOT.
DDIs are a proven way to move more people and reduce the potential for collisions by reducing conflict points.
