Public invited to WSDOT open house on I-405 congestion relief project

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

BOTHELL – The Washington State Department of Transportation will host a neighborhood open house Thursday, Aug. 18, about the recently funded Interstate 405 Northbound Peak Use Shoulder Lane project.

With funding from I-405 express toll lanes revenue, WSDOT plans to add new highway capacity between State Route 527 and Interstate 5 to help manage congestion. Starting in early 2017, contractor crews will modify the right shoulder of northbound I-405 to serve as an additional northbound lane during times with heavy congestion, typically afternoon rush hour.

The new peak use shoulder lane will be controlled with overhead electronic signs and open to traffic by summer 2017.

Open House details:

When: 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 18, 2016

Where: Bothell City Hall, Council Chambers, 18415 101st Ave. NE, Bothell.

No formal presentation will be provided. Attendees are welcome to come and go at their leisure during the two-hour event. The meeting location is accessible by public transit.
