The Pasco-Kahlotus Road Reconstruction/Overlay Phase II project (
‘P-K II project’) will improve the existing Pasco-Kahlotus
Road in Franklin County. Improvements will be made by reconstructing portions of this two-lane roadway, widening the
existing paved surface, improving approaches, overlaying the improved section, and addressing safety and drainage issues.
The overall length of the project will be 3.01 miles, and will complete a 10-mile all-weather route that the County has been
improving for over a decade.
This section of Pasco-Kahlotus suffers from structural and design deficits that pose safety and longevity concerns. The driving
surface, which is composed of bituminous surface treatment is in need of restoration. This section of the roadway traverses
rolling, hilly country, which results in sight distance concerns from the vertical alignment. Additionally, given the roadway
classification and the type of traffic it typically experiences, the width of the road is insufficient. This reconstruction project will
address these issues by rebuilding the vertical alignment and improving approaches, widening the roadway section, and
providing an asphaltic overlay. Upon completion, this project will make this portion of the Pasco-Kahlotus Road safer and
more user-friendly, and increase its lifespan by at least 50 years. This will preserve a vital lifeline for Franklin County, its
residents, and its business enterprises

Pasco-Kahlotus Road is the only major arterial linking the eastern section of Franklin County to SR-12 to SR-260. The road
has been serving the County
’s citizens since the late 1800’s; providing access to the City of Kahlotus, Star School, Ice harbor
the western shores of the Snake River. In 2016, this T3 classified road had an ADT of 1690, of these 21% is truck traffic,
though this increase to about 27% during peak harvest season.
In the past five years (2012-2017), this section of roadway there has been 8 reported accidents - 1 fatality and 7 property
damage, the majority of the accidents involved leaving the road. There was also a fatality accident in 2008 that fell out of the 5
year window for accident history.
In 2003, Franklin County began upgrading the Pasco-Kahlotus Road by means of an overlay and widening thus bringing the
roadway up to current design standards and an all-weather roadway route. As of to date, the County has improved the
roadway from SR-12 to M.P. 13.08 (Herman Road), except for this fourth phase of a 3.01 mile section, from M.P. 5.92
(Peterson Road) to M.P. 8.93 (Ice Harbor Road), that was skipped due to unsecured construction funds. This project will
complete a 10 mile all-weather route from SR-260 to Herman Road.
The Pasco-Kahlotus Road Reconstruction and Overlay II project, also known as CRP 605, aims to improve the skipped 3.01
miles of the Pasco-Kahlotus Road. This section suffers from deficient sight distances with respect to vertical curves, steep
slopes, and a narrow road section for the level of traffic it serves. The road is also subject to weight restrictions at various
points throughout the year, which is problematic, as this road is the major throughway for eastern Franklin County.
The proposed project aims to improve the safety of the roadway through correction of vertical curves and road widening. It will
also upgrade the road to an all-weather route, which will improve access in inclement weather. This is the last section of a
larger all-weather treatment for this portion of the Pasco-Kahlotus Road.
Currently, the project is in the right-of-way phase. The preliminary engineering and right-of-way phases have been funded with
local and federal sources. However, current federal funding levels for rural districts are not sufficient to move this project to
construction. Franklin County has secured $847,000 of Rural Arterial Preservation (RAP) funding with an additional $850,000
of RAP funds pending for the construction phase of this project. The engineer's estimate for construction is $2,237,000, leaving
a $540,000 difference.

The portion of the Pasco-Kahlotus Road described in the P-K II project scope is 26 feet wide that traverses hilly country with multiple,
substantial changes in elevation. These rises and falls result in a vertical alignment that is not in conformance with the current AASHTO
standards. The reconstruction of this roadway will correct these vertical alignment issues, reducing the potential for automotive collisions
caused by unseen objects in the roadway. Additionally, the roadway will be expanded to a 34-foot road section, which better reflects its
status as a major collector. This widening will provide better spacing on both lanes and will give drivers more room to navigate roadway
hazards. By providing these improvements, Franklin County aims to head off property damage and injury by creating a safer through way
within the county.
Unincorporated parts of Franklin County do not have many designated bike routes, though, through provision of improved shoulders, the
cyclist try to make such travel possible on major routes and near residential areas. Pasco-Kahlotus Road, though a heavily trafficked
roadway that may make bicycling a less preferred alternative, does provide paved shoulders and is near the City of Pasco. With the
completion of this last phase for widening, cyclist now have another option for semi-long distance bike ride with possibly Levey Park or
Juniper Dunes as their destination.
No fixed transit routes are available on Pasco-Kahlotus Road, thus necessitating a safe and reliable route from the rural county to the City of
Kahlotus. This project aims to provide a necessary improvement to the existing route to allow movement of people between these regions.
Pavement preservation represents a proactive approach in maintaining our existing road system. While the P-K II project calls for a large
section of the roadway to be reconstructed due to the vertical profile of the existing roads, the remaining section will be correcting pavement
deficiencies and adding structural strength by means of utilizing the existing roadway as the base of the travel lane and then widening the
shoulders and adding an asphalt overlay.
Franklin County is a rural district that is heavily reliant on agriculture. One critical aspect is the economic stability is the ability of farmers to
ship their products from farm to market. Aside from SR-395, much of this is accomplished via north-south routes in the County, such as
Pasco-Kahlotus Road has served the community since 1880's. During that time, the 45 mile road provides direct assess to the City of
Kahlotus, Star School, Ice harbor Dam, Lower Monumental Dam, Columbia Plateau Trail, Juniper Dunes Recreation Area, and recreational
activities located on the western shores of the Snake River.
In 2003, Franklin County began upgrading the Pasco-Kahlotus Road by means of an overlay and widening thus bringing the roadway up to
current design standards and an all-weather roadway route. This fourth phase of a 3.01 mile section, from M.P. 5.92 (Peterson Road) to M.P.
8.93 (Ice Harbor Road), that was skipped due to unsecured construction funds will complete a 10 mile all-weather route from SR-260 to
The maintenance of county roads simplifies logistics for farmers, allowing them to spend more time growing produce and less time
transporting goods, supplies, and laborers. As the Pasco-Kahlotus Rd serves as a major part of the system of county roadways, its upkeep is
of chief importance. While the P-K II project does not directly increase the number of farm-related jobs in the county, it provides a more
resilient roadway that, in turn should reduce future maintenance requirements and permits greater accessibility by users.
