    SR 167 - 15th Street SW to 15th Street NW - HOV - Complete October 2008

    Overview
    Crews have added a continuous northbound HOV lane from the Auburn Super Mall to Interstate 405 in Renton. This new lane, as well as new metered on-ramps, will increase safety and reduce congestion on this important corridor.

    How You Benefit
    Cross GlyphImproves Safety
    Metal guardrails will reduce median crossover collisions. Six modified off-ramps will decrease the chances of rear-end collisions by creating a smoother transition from the highway to the off-ramp. Widening the inside shoulder will provide space for emergency use. New lighting improves visibility.
    Car GlyphRelieves Congestion
    The new HOV lane and bypass lanes on the on-ramps will reduce congestion.
    Leaf Glyph Protects Environment
    Installation of nine retaining walls will reduce impacts to wetlands and wetland buffers. Stormwater treatment facilities will remove heavy metals and other debris from highway runoff.

    Partnerships & Cooperation
    The Corridor Working Group was comprised of representatives from cities along the SR 167 corridor, Pierce and King Counties, the Washington State Patrol, regional agencies and WSDOT. The Corridor Working Group advised the project team as it reviewed technical data, developed evaluation criteria for potential projects, and compiled the recommended project list.
