I-405/SR167 corridor meeting set for Tuesday in Renton

The I-405/SR 167 Executive Advisory Group will discuss next steps for the I-405 Master Plan.

Future transportation improvements for the Interstate 405/State Route 167 corridor will be the focus of a Renton meeting next week of local elected officials and transportation agency representatives.

The I-405/SR 167 Executive Advisory Group, chaired by Secretary of Transportation Roger Millar, will reconvene to continue discussions about next steps for the I-405 Master Plan.

“WSDOT is committed to coordinating with multiple partners and stakeholders to help keep the Eastside moving,” Millar said in a press release. “We know we need multimodal solutions to provide transportation choices in this vital corridor, and I’m pleased to be working with our partners on moving forward with these important next steps.”

Washington State Department of Transportation representatives will provide updates on the status of corridor projects funded by last year’s Connecting Washington transportation package, including the I-405/SR 167 Interchange Direct Connector project, as well as proposed improvements for the section of I-405 north of State Route 522. They will also present an overview of one-year performance data for the express toll lanes between Bellevue and Lynnwood.

In addition, representatives from Sound Transit and King County will deliver presentations about topics of interest to I-405 corridor stakeholders, including the Sound Transit 3 proposal recently approved by voters and the Eastside Rail Corridor Regional Trail.

The meeting is scheduled for 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., Dec. 6 at the Renton Community Center, 1715 Maple Valley Highway. It is open to the pubic and there will be a brief period for comments.
