SR 142 - SR 14 to US 97 Roadside Safety - Complete May 2010

This project was completed in May 2010 and made safety improvements to SR 142. Improvements were made in response to a statewide analysis that reported an increase in collisions occurring on rural highways, including this section of SR 142.

Throughout this project, crews installed guardrail and improved roadside shoulders to enhance motorist safety between Lyle at the SR 14 interchange, and Goldendale at the US 97 interchange.

The 2005 Transportation Partnership Account funding package provided funding for this project to improve safety along this highway and help reduce the severity of collisions where motorists run off the roadway.
