Some $12 million in federal stimulus money is finding its way to our state which will be used for safety projects on several state highways.

The major beneficiary will be two-lane highways in Thurston, Mason, Lewis, Pacific and Grays Harbor counties which will see the installation of centerland rumble strips. 

According to the Washington State Department of Transportation, these rumble strips help in alerting tired drivers who are about to cross the center line.

The DOT expects to award the projects next month with work starting in August.   It’s estimated that the $12 million will provide about 120 jobs. statewide.
