Washington Department of Transportation Open House March 18

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
The Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is holding an open house on March 18 from 5-7 pm at Bothell City Hall.  WSDOT is evaluating changes to I-405 between state routes 522 and 527 to improve the capacity of the road. 
The I-405, SR 522 to SR 527 Capacity Improvements Project would:
Widen I-405 through the SR 522 interchange and build direct access ramps to the express toll lanes at SR 522
Extend the dual I-405 express toll lane system between SR 522 and SR 527 (build one new lane in each direction)
Build a partial direct access ramp at SR 527 (to east, north and south) to provide connections to the Canyon Park Park and Ride
This project is fully funded for engineering and environmental review stages, with a total of $20 million in funding during the 2017-19 and 2019-21 biennia.  An additional $20 million is needed for right-of-way acquisition, and an estimated $450 million is needed for construction.
WSDOT is evaluating potential funding and phasing approaches and continuing to work with stakeholders to prioritize project elements with the most benefits for I-405 travelers.
