Nine Mile Road Traffic Shifted Between Allegheny And Navy Federal Way

May 1, 2021

The Nine Mile Road westbound travel lanes, between Allegheny Avenue and Navy Federal Way, were shifted to the newly constructed westbound lanes by Friday morning.

The section between Security Place and Navy Federal Way remains one lane westbound to provide a safe area for crews to construct the remaining median work.

In the first photo shows drivers using the new outside westbound lane between Security Place and Navy Federal Way.

The photo below shows traffic using both westbound lanes opened between the new Beulah Middle School and Security Place. Eastbound traffic will remain in one lane as the remaining median work is completed.

This traffic shift allows crews to complete the new median and inside eastbound left turn lanes.

Traffic is expected to remain in this configuration until this summer.

The work is part of a $46 million effort to widen and improve Nine Mile Road from Beulah Road to Pine Forest Road. Once completed, the project will enhance safety, improve mobility, and reduce congestion for the estimated 19,000 drivers who travel the roadway daily.

    That entire project has been a nightmare. When it’s finished finished it will be OBSOLETE. Like always all government is a day late and a dollar short.

    Hey Henry-
    Here’s the craziest part-
    The only option for the work being done is what is being studied in preparation. Your forethought comment is absolutely correct. I met with a fdot specialist 10 or 12 years ago who was doing an advance study about the feasibility of widening Pensacola boulevard from four lanes to six lanes. The feasibility study was specifically a yes or no mandate, whether it was doable or not. The study was also very specific about the length- from I-10 to Nine and a half mile road. I told the guy that widening to Nine and a half mile was dumb- that the expansion should naturally end at the ten mile intersection. His reply was that when the feasibility study was commissioned, it was simply a feasibility study. Whether the job could be done or not. And at what cost. At that point recommending new and better and more obviously efficient ideas was already moot. Guess where the road ends now? And if you ask any person with common sense who drives in the area, guess where they’d say it should have ended?

    Finally looking like they may finish 9 Mile Rd. I can’t wait to see how they stretch Beulah Rd to the interstate into a 5 year project. Really looking forward to that project and how everyone will be looking at Rebel Road and Bridlewood as an alternate route especially with neither having a light and they didn’t bother four laning down to Rebel Rd to handle the overflow from the Beulah Rd Interstate project because that would have taken forethought and planning.
    I’m getting ahead of schedule. 9 Mile Rd is good to the school.
    Oak Haven Rd being used as the servants entrance for Deer Run Construction of 500 homes could be an interesting story. And now, DR Holmes wants add another 400 homes next to Deer Run and make my dead end road, Oak Haven Rd, connect into Deer Run so I guess that means one day we will need to 4 lane Oak Haven Rd with a light at Oak Haven Rd and Frank Reeder Rd,lol.
    9 Mile Rd looks good though but there are more nightmares ahead. smh
