The Springhetti Road and Broadway Avenue intersection is located south of the City of Snohomish and east of Highway 9. These roads intersected at a skewed angle making turning movements difficult.
Snohomish County realigned the intersection to improve sight distance and turning movements and to meet current design standards.
Retaining walls were constructed on both sides of Springhetti Road to allow for the widening and realignment, and guardrail was added along the west side of Springhetti Road.
Construction began at the end of May and was finished with the road reopening on August 1st.
An environmental review was completed for this project as required by the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). Public works determined that this project does not have a probable, significant adverse impact on the environment, and has issued a Determination of Nonsignificance (DNS).
An environmental impact statement (EIS) under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c) was not required. This decision was made after a review of SEPA documents and other information on file with this agency. These documents are available for public review upon request. This project did require a Land Disturbing Activity permit.
