Along with repaving, WSDOT contractor crews will improve some pedestrian crossings along SR 542 to bring them up to federal standard. This work will improve the trip for people walking or using wheelchairs along SR 542.

WSDOT contractor crews will fix potholes, cracks and deep layers of road damage. Then the highway will be ground down and repaved to improve the surface for drivers and cyclists and to keep the highway preserved for years to come.
