Intersection in Burbank closes, overpass opens

Posted: Updated:

BURBANK, Wash., -- Beginning today, Humorist Road traffic will no longer stop at a traffic signal before crossing US 12.  Drivers will now be able to use the new Humorist Road overpass.

While the new overpass opens today, the US12/Humorist Road intersection and traffic signal will be removed, eliminating the only remaining stop light between Walla Walla and Seattle.

Drivers will no longer have direct access to US 12 from Humorist Road, greatly reducing the risk of severe injury collisions and delays.

Drivers wanting access to US 12 from Humorist Road will turn west on Jantz Road and north on 5th Street to the US 12/SR124 interchange.
