The intersection of the I-82 westbound off ramp and Terrace Heights Drive had a history of collisions, as eastbound traffic from the off ramp had to merge with through traffic with limited visibility. WSDOT improved visibility and added a third eastbound lane, eliminating the need to merge. Drivers now have a free right turn onto the new eastbound lane from the I-82 westbound off ramp to the 17th Street signalized intersection.
