The public is invited to join Washington State Department of Transportation and elected officials on Tuesday in Bothell as they discuss ongoing and future improvements along the Interstate 405/State Route 167 corridor.

During the next quarterly meeting of the I-405/SR 167 Executive Advisory Group, WSDOT representatives will present an update on funded projects in the I-405/SR 167 program, as well as the latest information on I-405 express toll lanes performance.
