We repaved SR 9 from 176th Street Southeast to SR 96, extended a two-way left turn lane north of 168th Street Southeast and added another two-way left turn lane to the south. We also added left-turn pockets at the intersection of SR 9 and 168th Street Southeast.
The section of SR 9 from 176th Street Southeast to SR 96 had 20 collisions between 2006-2010, 13 of them being rear-end collisions and four T-bone collisions. Extending the two-way center turn lane and adding left turn pockets provides drivers a safer place to wait when turning onto and off of the highway, reducing the risk of collisions.
Providing a lane where drivers can wait to turn or to merge into traffic reduces delays and congestion for northbound and southbound drivers on SR 9.
| Economic Incentive
Repaving this section of SR 9 will reduce the need for expensive pothole repair and crack-sealing work. It also helps preserve the structural integrity of the roadway.
Partnerships & Cooperation
We worked with local jurisdictions to coordinate lane closures and other work involved in the project.
