Project Narrative  

  Benefits for the Community

  Relieves congestion Improves safety Accommodates development  

  Existing Project Conditions

  The Bakerview Road overpass has one travel lane in each direction between the I-5 off-ramps and no pedestrian facilities. This results in severe traffic congestion with traffic backing onto I-5.   

  Proposed Project Improvements

  This project will widen the Bakerview Road overpass providing two travel lanes in each direction, dual left turn lanes and a sidewalk on the north side.
