Why is WSDOT repaving this section of SR 169?
This section of SR 169 was last paved more than 20 years ago. In that time, traffic has increased by about 45 percent, with 42,000 vehicles a day using the highway. More than 20 years of increasing traffic has created cracks, ruts and potholes. Grinding off the surface layer and repaving it with asphalt will extend the life of the highway and reduce maintenance costs.

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

Project Benefits
Preservation – Repaving this section of SR 169 will keep the highway in good condition and reduce the need for emergency repairs.

Safety – This project will create a smoother roadway and safer driving surface. It will remove ruts where water puddles and reduces traction.
