WSDOT converted the transit-only lane on SR 96 into a right-turn lane for eastbound traffic approaching Dumas Road. This helps alleviate some of the congestion drivers often faced during the busy morning and evening commutes.
Traffic at this intersection has increased significantly due to population growth. During busy commute times, traffic often backed up at the Dumas Road signal behind drivers who want to go straight and those waiting for the light to turn green. Adding a dedicated turn lane reduces delays and congestion.
This project was completed in December 2012.
Providing a dedicated right turn lane for eastbound drivers on SR 96 reduces backups at the signal and improves traffic flow.
