This project strengthened the eastbound and westbound right lanes of I-82 and extended the service life of the pavement by installing dowel bars in the wheel paths between each concrete panel.
Crews also replaced severely cracked concrete panels, and ground the surface to improve the ride and improve traction.
WSDOT completed this project ahead of schedule and under budget.
Crews constructed a smoother highway and improved traction. Crews also restored guardrail and pavement markings.
| Economic Incentive
Crews extended the service life of the pavement.
