Diverging Diamond Interchange comes to Washington State
Doug Adamson, or (360) 357-2716.

The Washington State Department of Transportation will begin major construction to the I-5/Marvin Road interchange near the Waste and Recovery Center in Lacey this summer. This video illustrates how using an innovative design transforms the interchange into something that helps reduce congestion and the potential for collisions, and makes improvements for cyclists and pedestrians. Before this project begins, WSDOT encourages anyone who uses this interchange to sign up for email notifications  to stay informed.
