SR 9 - 176th Street SE to SR 96 - Paving - Complete September 2013

Overview
We repaved SR 9 from 176th Street Southeast to SR 96, extended a two-way left turn lane north of 168th Street Southeast and added another two-way left turn lane to the south. We also added left-turn pockets at the intersection of SR 9 and 168th Street Southeast.

How You Benefit
Cross GlyphImproves Safety
The section of SR 9 from 176th Street Southeast to SR 96 had 20 collisions between 2006-2010, 13 of them being rear-end collisions and four T-bone collisions. Extending the two-way center turn lane and adding left turn pockets provides drivers a safer place to wait when turning onto and off of the highway, reducing the risk of collisions.
Car GlyphRelieves Congestion
Providing a lane where drivers can wait to turn or to merge into traffic reduces delays and congestion for northbound and southbound drivers on SR 9.
Dollar Sign Glyph Economic Incentive
Repaving this section of SR 9 will reduce the need for expensive pothole repair and crack-sealing work. It also helps preserve the structural integrity of the roadway.

Partnerships & Cooperation
We worked with local jurisdictions to coordinate lane closures and other work involved in the project.
