Access and Hearings Home

Access and Hearings is part of the WSDOT Development Division, administering the limited access and managed access programs for all Washington state highways. The group also provides technical support and training to project teams developing Interchange Justification Reports and Access Reports as well as coordinates all project hearings statewide. They also review and approve access documentation on state route projects and coordinate actions with FHWA for approval of access revisions on Interstate routes. 

An effective access management program can provide all of these benefits without adding asphalt: reduce crashes as much as 50%, increase roadway capacity by 23-45%, and reduce travel times/delay as much as 40-60%.
