In response to increasing congestion on State Route 14 during peak commute hours in east Vancouver, this project works to improve travel times on a consistent basis from the SR 14/I-205 Interchange to Southeast 164th Avenue.

Why is WSDOT working on improvements to SR 14 between the I-205 Interchange and Southeast 164th Avenue?
This stretch of SR 14 is often a bottleneck during peak commute times, with substantial traffic merging at the SR 14/I-205 Interchange and at SE 164th Avenue. This project will address safety, congestion and inconsistent travel times along the corridor.

Community input
WSDOT hosted an open house on Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017, where members of the community received information about this project and provided input. Folks also provided ideas to help improve travel times along the corridor via an online survey (pdf 253 kb).

Are noise walls included in this project?
Acoustical engineers will evaluate sources and patterns of noise in neighborhoods near the project limits. The findings will be used to determine if noise walls would be reasonable and feasible to include in this project. Get more information about noise barriers.

What's next?
Environmental documentation, purchasing property, obtaining permits and a competitive bidding process is needed in advance of construction, which is expected to begin in 2020.

The End Result
This project will improve safety, increase traffic flow and reduce commute times on this highly-congested roadway.

Project Benefits
Improve travel times: This project will provide more reliable travel times through the corridor.
