From staff reports:

The Triangle Project, a Washington State Department of Transportation endeavor in Federal Way, is moving along swiftly and smoothly.

WSDOT plans to hold an open house for citizens to learn more about the project. The open house is tentatively planned for early December. More details will be released when they are made available.

The project aims to reconstruct the area where Highway 18, Highway 161 and Interstate 5 converge. The project is in its first of two phases. The phase will eliminate the current cloverleaf loop ramps and replace them with flyover ramps for westbound Highway 18 to southbound I-5 and eastbound Highway 18 to northbound I-5. Direct access will be provided to Highway 161 from southbound I-5 and westbound Highway 18 through the construction of new exit ramps at South 356th Street and South 359th Street in Federal Way.

Mowat Construction Company began work on the project in August. To learn more about this project, call the project hotline at (206) 440-4900.
