SR 509 - S Normandy Road Vic to 174th Intersection - Paving & ADA Compliance - Complete October 2015

Overview
In summer 2015, contractor crews working for WSDOT repaved SR 509, also known as 1st Avenue South. The old pavement had deep cracks, chips, wheel ruts, and potholes.

Once the new pavement was in place, crews replaced traffic detection equipment and placed new high visibility striping.

In addition to new pavement, contractor crews upgraded 13 pedestrian ramps to meet current ADA standards.
