Video on the completion of 167. Shows a few new visualisations for the interchanges, and how local creeks will be moved.

Funny how I included the completion of the WA 167 freeway as a missed opportunity for Seattle recently. I'll be glad to see it come to fruition.

It's well on its way. The 2-year 70th Ave bridge replacement project begins this summer. It will demolish the old bridge, currently in the way of the new freeway, and also rebuilds some local roads. The second phase (509 Spur) starts construction in two years. The 167 construction won't begin until the 509 section is nearing completion, in summer 2025.

It's possible that construction phasing could be moved up with $265M in accelerated funding, provided last month by the state legislature.

New roundabout coming to SR-20 @ Banta Road, the primary northern access point to NAS Whidbey. Construction starts next Wednesday...should be complete by fall:

This will be the fifth roundabout on SR-20, including the two in Port Townsend and two new ones at Sharpes and Howards Corners.
