As of this summer, Seattle ranks fourth nationally for traffic congestion in a study by TomTom, the Dutch GPS maker. The study measured delays and only Los Angeles, San Francisco and Honolulu are worse. East Coast cities like New York and Boston are less congested.
WSDOT on Sunday opened two on-ramps connecting South Sprague Avenue to Interstate 5 in Tacoma. The ramps were the last major piece of the $114 million eastbound state Route 16 project being built by Mowat Construction.
