WSDOT HOT Lanes Contractor Condenses 30 Days of Lane Closures to Three Days reports, “Fighting traffic can sometimes seem like an upstream battle. With that in mind, contractors say they’ve found a way to condense 30 nights of highway lane closures into less than three days of labor, working nonstop to finish a fish passageway while repaving about one mile of State Route 167.” [Link added.] The site adds, “The project is part of a roughly two-year plan to expand the State Route 167 high occupancy toll, or HOT, lanes.”
