Gov. Jay Inslee
Governor Jay Inslee will be in Shoreline Wednesday at the WSDOT Transportation Management Center, 15710 Dayton Ave N, Shoreline to announce express toll lane changes on I-405 and new changes to assist with congestion along I-5 corridor.

Gov. Jay Inslee will meet with workers and managers at Washington State Department of Transportation’s new Transportation Management Center in Shoreline on Tuesday, February 16.

Inslee will highlight two key proposals – new Incident Response Teams and faster replacement of aging expansion joints – for improving congestion and safety along the I-5 corridor.

Inslee is requesting the Legislature to approve 10 new Incident Response Teams that can quickly help clear collisions and provide roadside assistance.

IRTs have proven to be a cost-effective way of reducing congestion resulting from blocking collisions and disabled vehicles on the freeway. Inslee proposed $10 million for the new IRTs in his supplemental transportation budget.

Inslee will also announce that WSDOT is scheduled to replace dozens of aging expansion joints along I-5 from Marysville to Federal Way. This is a critical safety and maintenance issue that Inslee says cannot be delayed.

In addition, Inslee will announce more than a dozen improvements being made to the I-405 express toll lanes to improve traffic flow and add capacity.
