SR 240 - Richland Corridor Improvements

Project news

  • Do you have a few minutes to take a short survey on how to make the SR 240 corridor in and near Richland work better? We'd love your feedback on potential infrastructure improvements, operational enhancements and transportation demand management strategies. Take the survey
  • Thank you to all those who took the time to participate in our initial survey regarding the SR 240 corridor. We had 2,494 responses from September 19 - October 23 and got excellent feedback on how people use the corridor, what the major issues are between I-182 and SR 225, and your ideas addressing those issues. 
  • Design for this project is expected to start summer 2019.
