If you find yourself stuck in traffic a lot on Highway 217  (and what westsider doesn’t?) you’ll be glad to know that ODOT is doing a bit of a remodel.  By 2011, the northbound stretch from TV Highway to the Sunset will add a lane which should ease things up a bit.  A new lane is also going in southbound from Wilshire to Walker Road.


Better yet, the two and a half year project will require just shy of 500 new jobs.  

Of course this could mean some traffic issues during the construction.  Make sure you tune in to NewsRadio 750 KXL for the latest on delays.
