WSDOT and Tri-State Construction added a southbound right turn lane and a northbound left turn lane on SR 169 at S. 288th Street. We also added a left turn lane on eastbound S. 288th Street. The new turn lanes will reduce the likelihood of collisions and will keep traffic moving.
New turn lanes will reduce the risk of accidents. New street lighting will improve visibility.
Turn lanes help keep traffic moving by eliminating backups behind turning vehicles.
| Protects Environment
New drainage facilities will capture and clean highway runoff. A retaining wall was installed to prevent environmental effects. Crews also added landscaping to protect the environment.
Partnerships & Cooperation
In a May 12, 2005, letter we initiated Section 106 Consultation with the Snoqualmie, Muckleshoot, and Yakama tribes. After conducting research on cultural resources in the areas, we drafted a report and sent it to each of the tribes for their review and comment. After a 30-day comment periode WSDOT forwarded the report to the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) who concurred with the findings of the report.
