Chosen option - SR 20 Morris to Jacobs

The week of Feb. 4, 2013, the preferred option was chosen for improving SR 20 near the new Island Transit facility on Whidbey Island.


The preferred option:

* Reduces the number of intersections connected to State Route 20 from three to one by eliminating the two Parker Road/ SR 20 intersections by realigning Parker Road into Morris Road

* Improves safety at Morris Road by adding right and left-turn lanes

* Accomplishes the project for the least cost compared to the other options

* Provides for a second access for Island Transit

* Improves visibility for drivers by eliminating a skewed intersection

* Puts the new intersection at the end of the curve, rather than in the middle
