SR 522 South Campus Access

Location: Bothell, WA
Client: Washington State Department of General Administration

Otak served as the prime consultant for this new south campus access entrance from SR 522, which opened ahead of schedule and allowed the joint campus to increase enrollment over time from its previous capacity of 3,000 full-time students to a total of 10,000 full-time students. With a new access lane from I-405 and new traffic signal on SR 522, the interchange also reduced congestion and enhanced safety for those traveling to and from the campus and into the city of Bothell. Otak was responsible for hydraulic analysis, TESC, drainage, water and sewer design, urban design, landscaping, irrigation and constructability review. This was a continuation of previous Otak involvement in the Campus and SR 522 work, which we had been providing since 1993.
