Street restriping to alleviate traffic
Crews are expected to create a second left-turn lane on eastbound N.E. 175th St. at 131st Ave. N.E. by restriping the roadway there, according to a city official. Traffic will then have two lanes to turn left from 175th onto 131st. The improvement is expected to improve vehicle capacity 1.6 to 1.7 times. On January 5, the Washington Department of Transportation will adjust traffic signal timing at the intersection. A city official said restriping is contingent on weather.
