Preliminary design is complete. Detailed design and environmental documentation are progressing.
Currently, there are not enough funds to construct the project. Current funding should complete the design and purchase much of the property needed for the project.
Why is WSDOT
working with Mason County on this project?
The intersection of Lynch Road and US 101 has been the location of severe collisions. The purpose of the project is to reduce the number and severity of collisions at this intersection. The 2005 Legislature assigned this project to WSDOT with a budget of $1 million.
Because the solution to the collisionproblem was expected to be the construction of a new county road, WSDOT asked Mason County to take the lead. Mason County is currently the lead agency on the project.
The End Result
The proposed project would construct a new frontage road connecting Lynch Road to the existing grade-separated interchange at SR 108 (Kamilche). Left turns from Lynch Road to south bound US 101 would be prohibited.
This project reduces the potential for collisions for the traveling public by giving an alternative to the current US 101 Lynch Road "at grade" intersection.
What is the project timeline?
Design needed to begin purchasing right of way (property) is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2008. Purchasing right of way will begin soon after.
Construction will be scheduled when construction funding is secured.
Project signage will reflect the cost of construction engineering, project bid award and sales tax.
