KPFF designed all the structures and a significant portion of the paving and drainage for this project. KPFF engineering a grade-separated flyover ramp system for the NE 160th Street northbound on-connection to I-405/SR 522 and the northbound off-ramp to SR 522; an upgrade of the entire corridor to meet current stormwater runoff requirements; re-striping of 12 miles of I-405 to accommodate the widening; over 50 new sign and tolling gantry structures, and 5,000 linear feet of new retaining and noise walls.
