SR 518 - Des Moines Memorial Drive - Interchange Improvements - Complete January 2019


WSDOT worked with the city of Burien to add a new two-lane off-ramp (pdf 135 kb) from eastbound SR 518 to Des Moines Memorial Drive. This new off-ramp improves freight and vehicle access to the city of Burien's Northeast Redevelopment Area (NERA), the Port of Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region. 

The new eastbound SR 518 off-ramp opened to traffic at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019.


The cost of this project was $13.4 million. Funding was provided by the Connecting Washington transportation package.
