SR 26 - Intersection Improvements


June 2017

  • This project was awarded to Central Washington Asphalt on May 31, 2017.
  • Construction will begin in August.

This project will rebuild and realign two intersections on SR 26:

  • SR 26 and SR 243, near Vantage
  • SR 26 and Thacker Road, two miles west of Othello

Why is WSDOT realigning these intersections?
Both SR 243 and Thacker Road intersect SR 26 at a skewed angle. This project will realign and rebuild these intersections so that they intersect at more of a 90-degree angle. The project will also install electronic "Your Speed" signs at SR 26 and SR 243, and electronic signs on SR 26 at Thacker Road warning them of incoming traffic from Thacker.

The End Result

This project will improve sight distance for vehicles on SR 26 and also on the intersecting roadways. It will make it easier for vehicles to navigate as the electronic signs are designed to increase driver awareness.

Project Benefits

  • Improved vison for drivers at intersections
  • Increased driver safety awareness

What is the project timeline?

August 2017: Construction scheduled to start.

October 2017: Construction scheduled to be complete.

25 working days
