Public invited to Dec. 2 online meeting

BELLEVUE – People who are interested in the Interstate 405/State Route 167 corridor program are invited to participate in an online meeting Thursday, Dec. 2. The Washington State Department of Transportation will host a virtual public meeting with the I-405/SR 167 Corridor Program Executive Advisory Group.

The meeting will include updates from Secretary of Transportation Roger Millar and the WSDOT project team will provide a summary of the status of the I-405/SR 167 interim financial report.

The I-405/SR 167 Corridor Program includes more than 150 unique, coordinated multimodal projects that enhance user experience and bring increased reliability to one of the state’s busiest corridors.

The I-405/SR 167 Executive Advisory Group was created to guide WSDOT in the development and implementation of the I-405 Master Plan and the SR 167 Corridor Plan. The Executive Advisory Group is comprised of transportation agencies and elected leaders along I-405 and SR 167. WSDOT continues to coordinate with the Executive Advisory Group to advance corridor planning and respond to legislative direction about funding and phasing options.
