5 Existing Federal Way Historic Oregon Trail US 30 Two-Lane Roadway Substandard

6 Ongoing Growth ITD Relocated US 30 to I-84 ACHD assumed responsibility Traffic increases Need improvements

7 Project Constraints Higher than state average accident rate Need 2-Lanes each direction One side developed Canal and bench along other side Widen Roadway in Constricted Space

8 Roadway Alternatives Meeting – January 1992 –5 lanes –One-way couplet –4 lanes –No-build Alternative Modes Meeting - May 1992 –Bike path alternatives –Vista turnouts –Landscaping Public Involvement

9 Public Support Public Hearing December 1992 Supported safer 5-lane section Landscape Vista turnouts Bike Path

10 Project Development Original 3 Mile Project split into 3 projects Additional 2 Miles Designed Total of 5.2 miles –5-lane section –Vista turnouts –Bike Path –Landscaping
