This Roadway Preservation project repaved 8.61 miles of SR 28, west of Quincy.

Why is WSDOT pave SR 28?
SR 28 is deteriorating and repaving when we did, at the lowest life-cycle cost, preserves the load carrying capacity and upgrades the safety features of the roadway.

The End Result
This project restored the structural integrity of the pavement. It also improved safety by installing new, higher visibility striping, installing centerline rumble strips, and updating guardrail. The Quincy Valley Safety Rest Area parking lot was seal coated to preserve the surface. Sidewalk ramps in the rest area were fitted with "truncated dome" pads to assist sight impaired pedestrians and to comply with new American's with Disabilities Act standards.
