Status

 
  • The project is complete.
  • Why is WSDOT improving this intersection?
    WSDOT is improving the US 395 and Lind Road intersection to reduce the risk of collisions and improve traffic flow.

    The intersection has a history of collisions. Lind Road is a rural roadway that is used by a large number of vehicles traveling between the Coyote Ridge Corrections Center in Connell and the Tri-Cities.

    WSDOT will build a southbound right turn acceleration lane on US 395 from Lind Road and a northbound left turn deceleration lane from US 395 onto Lind Road. WSDOT will also update the lighting system and install permanent signing and new lane markings to accomodate the improvements to the intersection.

    The End Result
    WSDOT will improve the intersection at US 395 and Lind Road by adding new acceleration and deceleration lanes, which will reduce collisions and potential conflicts.

    Project Benefits

    Safety:
    Reduces the risk of  collisions by building a new acceleration and deceleration lane.
