This project improved efficiency and safety at the I-182 and Road 100 interchange by providing channelization and adding signals at the ramp intersections with Road 100.
Traffic signals were added at the off ramp terminals to improve movement at the interchange. A free right turn was added to the eastbound off ramp for vehicles heading south on Road 100.
The second phase of the Road 100 interchange improvements was opened to traffic in July 2009. This phase added a loop ramp from northbound Road 100 to westbound I-182.
Construction is funded by an appropriation from the Federal SAFETEA-LU Act.
Conflicts and backups will be reduced with the addition of the new signals and revised interchange. This project should reduce collisions and improve traffic flow and safety.
Traffic will be able to flow through the intersection more smoothly due to the signals and revised channelization.
| Protects Environment
WSDOT is committed to protecting the environment and makes every effort to assess and minimize negative impacts from highway improvement projects.
| Economic Incentive
Franklin County and the City of Pasco have experienced tremendous growth in the last few years. The previous interchange experienced backups and delays during peak travel periods. Revising this interchange improves the functionality of the interchange and allows further growth.
