The Washington State Department of Transportation is weighing how to decrease gridlock on Interstate 405 from Renton to Bellevue.
The department will hold a meeting to discuss a the Renton to Bellevue Express Toll Lanes project from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., August 25 at Renton High School.
The project will create a dual-lane express toll lane system and add new capacity between Northeast Sixth Street in Bellevue and SR 167 in Renton. It will connect a 40-mile system of express toll lanes from Lynnwood to Auburn.
The department hopes this will improve travel times and trip reliability in one of the state’s most congested corridors.
“The Renton to Bellevue Widening and Express Toll Lanes project will improve traffic flow and safety by continuing to build improvements from the I-405 Master Plan,” the WSDOT website stated. More information is available on the WSDOT website.
