A groundbreaking and ribbon-cutting for a $112 million project to improve the interchange of Interstate 5 and state Route 18 known as “the Triangle” will take place at 10 a.m. Wednesday in Federal Way.

The public event will be in the southeast parking lot of Christian Faith Center, 33645 20th Ave. S. The groundbreaking was previously scheduled for the Wild Waves parking lot in Federal Way, but was moved to accommodate a larger crowd.

Elected officials and state Secretary of Transportation Paula Hammond are among those scheduled to take part in the hourlong ceremony.

The project includes two flyover ramps from Route 18 to I-5 and a new exit ramp to Route 161, also called Enchanted Parkway South. The Triangle is named for the intersection of I-5, Route 18 and Route 161.
