I-405 - SB SE 8th St to Northup Way Vic - Paving - Complete September 2014

In summer 2014, contractor crews working for WSDOT repaved just more than two miles of southbound Interstate 405 from State Route 520 to Southeast 8th Street in Bellevue.

Prior to this work, southbound I-405 hadn't been repaved since 1995. Over the years, increasing traffic volumes along with freeze/thaw cycles had resulted in significant deterioration. There were noticeable bumps, cracks and ruts from the wheels of the 175,000 vehicles that use the interstate every day.
