New type of interchange coming to WA

Check out this crazy new interchange coming to Lacey. We talked about this just a couple years ago.  It’s pretty clever.

WSDOT – Project – I-5 – SR 510 Interchange – Reconstruct Interchange

Looks like initial engineering is getting ready to start on this project.   I can’t help but wonder though, the timeline calls for final design by 2017, construction in 2018 to start and completed in 2020.

I know I am a software guy, and I don’t really get the scale of these projects, but often they seem like more red-tape than actual progress.

The city was key in obtaining funding from the State Legislature as part of the Connecting Washington Transportation package

Significant changes have been made to the layout and presentation of the report.

WSDOT recently published its quarterly performance and accountability report, the Gray Notebook, and states that 92.1 percent of state-owned bridges measured by deck area are in fair or better condition. It is an improvement from 91.4 percent in 2010, and shows about a 700,000 square foot reduction in the bridges by deck area that were in poor condition.
