To improve safety on US 2 and SR 92, we installed over a mile of guardrail and removed potentially dangerous objects such as tree stumps and boulders from the side of the road.
Before these improvements, approximately 45 percent of all collisions on this stretch of US 2 involved vehicles running off the road and hitting fixed objects. On SR 92, there were eight run-off-the-road collisions in nine years on just a half-mile stretch of the highway.
Installing guardrail and removing potentially dangerous objects along US 2 and SR 92 will improve driver safety by reducing the risk and severity of run-off-the-road collisions.
Partnerships & Cooperation
At WSDOT we seek to address the concerns of the tribal nations using the process outlined in Section 106 of The National Historic Preservation Act and the WSDOT Tribal Consultation Policy adopted in 2003 by the Transportation Commission as part of the WSDOT Centennial Accord Plan.
To learn more about Section 106 Tribal Consultation (also called government-to-government tribal consultation process) please visit WSDOT's Tribal Liaison page, where you'll find the WSDOT Centennial Accord Plan and WSDOT's Tribal Consultation Policy (Adopted by the Transportation Commission on February 19, 2003).
