Appreciate attendance at Open House

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Washington State Department of Transportation, I am writing to say thank you to everyone who came to the Cameron Lake/US 97 intersection Open House last Wednesday (Sept. 19). We were very pleased with the turnout and received lots of feedback and even a few new alternatives.

More than 230 people signed in and 160 comment forms were submitted in addition to several emails that have been received. I am sorry that our maintenance shed’s conference room wasn’t bigger, but despite the cramped quarters, everyone was patient and (I hope) got their questions answered.

We are analyzing the comments and the new alternatives and expect that we can be back with the results and plan to address the collisions by later this fall, so work can start next summer.

Thank you,

Kevin Waligorski, P.E.

Project Engineer
