14th Ave West - Road Extension

February 2018 Update

Snohomish County Public Works is conducting a study to survey and monitor habitat use of the 14th Ave W project area. Public Works is partnering with the Edmonds Community College “sponsored project” program to offer an educational opportunity to survey and monitor the site. This collaboration is part of the department’s efforts in promoting community partnerships. Public Works’ Environmental Services (ENVS) personnel will work with the Edmonds Community College project coordinator and students to set up the cameras. Students would then report their findings to ENVS to be included in the report.

The county will complete its report in June 2018 with the possibility of additional findings in an August 2019 report.


Snohomish County Public Works is proposing an extension of 14th Ave West to improve the north-south traffic circulation and expand mobility for bicyclists and pedestrians. The 14th Ave West extension project will include a two-lane road, bike lanes and sidewalks. A new intersection will be constructed near the 21400 block of Locust Way.

Environmental Review

The county will complete an environmental review of the proposed project area in compliance with the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA).
