Why did WSDOT repave this section of SR 164?
SR 164 is the main highway serving the Muckleshoot Reservation, as well as connecting Auburn and Enumclaw. About 10,000 vehicles use this highway each day.

About 2 miles of this section of SR 164 east of the White River Amphitheater is made up of concrete panels that were almost 70 years old. Crews replaced 38 of the panels that were damaged. Crews also ground the entire 2-mile concrete section to smooth the roadway and seams between the concrete panels.

The End Result
This preservation project provides a smoother, safer highway for drivers.

Project Benefits
Preservation – Replacing broken panels, grinding the concrete and repaving the asphalt on this section of highway improves the surface and extend the life of the highway.

Safety – This project removed ruts where water puddles and reduces traction, creating a smoother, safer surface for drivers.
