I-205 - Ramp to SR 14 Zipper Merge Pilot Project - Regular merge

WSDOT Regular Merge - how to navigate a regular merge

The ramps from I-205 to eastbound SR 14 become congested during peak travel times. During the peak travel times, travelers will be directed to use a "zipper merge."

During free-flow traffic conditions, (traffic volumes are low/less travelers on the road), drivers should merge normally when they find a gap in the flow of traffic and when it is safe to do so.
