The I-405 - South Bellevue Widening Project, also known as the 112th Avenue SE to SE 8th Street Project, helps relieve congestion at one of the worst I-405 bottlenecks—the drive in and out of Bellevue. Between May 2007 and September 2009:
- Added a new northbound lane from 112th Avenue SE to I-90.
- Widened the existing northbound bridge over Coal Creek Parkway.
- Built a new lane in each direction from I-90 to SE Eighth Street. Removed the Wilburton Tunnel.
- Built a new, three-lane, southbound bridge over I-90.
- Converted the existing southbound bridge over I-90 to carry the northbound carpool lane.
The project improves traffic merge conditions and increases freeway capacity.
The added lanes on I-405 increase general purpose capacity and improve traffic flow.
| Protects Environment
The project provides noise mitigation, created a new stream channel, enhanced wetlands and wildlife habitat, and improves water quality by treating highway stormwater runoff.
