WSDOT built a high occupancy vehicle lane in each direction for carpools, vanpools and buses between South 284th Street and South 272nd Street on State Route 99 north of Federal Way.
Better lighting, raised sidewalks and landscaped strips will enhance safety in the area.
The new HOV lanes will mean less congestion for carpools, vanpools, and buses.
| Protects Environment
A new underground concrete tank will store and clean highway runoff.
| Economic Incentive
Less congestion translates to a greater economic benefit.
Partnerships & Cooperation
This project is WSDOT’s part in a master plan to improve traffic flow and safety on SR 99 from Federal Way to the Seattle city limits. Five South King County cities - Federal Way, Kent, Des Moines, Sea Tac and Tukwila - are in various stages of improving SR 99.
