This project made safety improvements to various locations throughout the State Route 7 Corridor from US Highway 12 to the Lewis/ Pierce County line.
Prior to this project, a statewide analysis of accidents highlighted the number of accidents in rural areas where motorists had driven off the roadway as a major concern. In the 2005 legislative session, funding was allocated to make safety improvements to this corridor.
These safety improvements will reduce the severity of accidents where motorists have driven off the roadway.
