I-5 - SR 432 Talley Way Interchange - Open October 2011

This project improved the I-5 interchange at SR 432 (Exit 36), and the adjacent SR 432 interchange at Talley Way. The new interchanges eliminate weaving conditions, create better connections to existing roads, increase capacity and decrease congestion.

How You Benefit
Cross GlyphImproves Safety
Reconstructing the interchanges addressed weaving concerns, and reduced the probablity of collisions between vehicles that are merging and changing lanes.
Car GlyphRelieves Congestion
The SR 432 interchanges at I-5 and Talley Way are in close proximity to each other, which caused traffic to back up as cars and trucks merged back and forth between them. This project improved the interconnectivity of these interchanges and helps reduce congestion problems.

Partnerships & Cooperation
The Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments (CWCOG), the cities of Kelso and Longview, the Port of Longview and Cowlitz County were instrumental in the development of this project.
