The $263.4 million I-5 Everett Freeway Expansion Project was WSDOT's first true design-build project and the third largest contract in WSDOT history. The I-5 Everett Freeway Expansion Project helps unclog a notorious I-5 traffic chokepoint and improves safety by adding carpool lanes and auxiliary lanes, and improves freeway exits and onramps. The key points of this project are clearly stated goals for: management and execution of a highly collaborative working environment; development of special tools and processes to control cost, schedule, resources, and quality; decisionmaking and issue resolution at the appropriate level; and success in delivering the project on an aggressive schedule.

Owner: Washington State Department of Transportation, Everett, WA.
