Virtual Outreach Event for I-405 Renton to Bellevue Express Toll Lanes
The I-405 Renton to Bellevue Design-Build project is designed to reduce congestion and improve safety performance along one of the state's most congested sections of highway.
The project will add new capacity to create a two-lane express toll lane system between SR 167 in Renton and Northeast 6th Street in Bellevue. In general, the project will add one new lane in each direction. The existing HOV lane will be combined with this new lane to create a dual express toll lane system.
The new express toll lanes will connect to the existing express toll lane system between Bellevue and Lynnwood, as well as the SR 167 HOT lanes via the I-405/SR 167 Interchange Direct Connector, to create a 40-mile system of express toll lanes. This project is designed to improve speeds and trip reliability for all travelers and support the new I-405 Bus Rapid Transit line between Lynnwood and Tukwila included in the voter-approved Sound Transit 3 package.
