This section of US 12 is located north of the communities of Touchet and Lowden. To maintain access to these communities, two interchanges were constructed with local roads including the existing US 12 at the bottom of Nine Mile Hill and Lower Dry Creek Road. Bridges were constructed to maintain connectivity along Cummins Road, Touchet Road North and Woodward Canyon. New bridges were also constructed to span the Touchet River, Touchet Floodway and Dry Creek.
What to expect
The new section of US 12 between Nine Mile Hill and the Frenchtown vicinity is complete and open to traffic.
