Why is WSDOT
repaving State Route 162 and updating sidewalk ramps and pedestrian push buttons at signals between SR 410 and 96th Street near Sumner?
This section of SR 162 has cracks and ruts in many places that can lead to potholes. The project will extend the life of the highway and provide a smoother ride for the approximate 20,000 vehicles that travel through this area every day.
The ADA work involves smoothing out concrete curbs and sidewalks, and updating the push buttons at signals which improves access for pedestrians and people with disabilities.
The End Result
