Olympia is holding an open house Wednesday about proposed access ramps to U.S. Highway 101 that are intended to reduce congestion on the city’s westside.
The public is invited to attend the event from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday in the student union building at South Puget Sound Community College, 2011 Mottman Road SW. Informational materials will be available. The public is welcome to share suggestions about what environmental effects should be evaluated.
The West Olympia Access Project calls for new freeway ramps at Kaiser Road and Yauger Way, with the former likely built in 10 to 15 years. The new freeway access points are expected to divert as many as 600 vehicles per hour from the intersection at Black Lake Boulevard and Cooper Point Road, which is considered the city’s busiest intersection.
