WSDOT Tackles I-405 Express Lanes Slow Spot

Kirkland Reporter reports, “Interstate 405 drivers and bus riders use the express toll lanes for a faster trip but during the peak of the afternoon commute even the fast lanes have their slow spots.” WSDOT plans to deal with one such spot by restriping the highway and opening a new lane between Northeast 195th Street and SR 527 “to give drivers space to pull out of the express toll lanes before merging into the regular lanes.” The new, almost half-mile lane will open next week.
