36th and 35th Avenues W
Update December 2021
The 35th/36th Ave W project recently reached full funding with the addition of a $3.3 million grant from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board. As a result, the entire project will be completed in one phase and construction is scheduled to begin in 2023.
This two-mile corridor improvement project is a joint effort between the City of Lynnwood and Snohomish County. The County’s section of the project is between 164th St SW and Highway 99.
The planned improvements to the existing two-lane roadway include the addition of a two-way center turn lane, sidewalks, bike lanes, bus pullouts, streetlights, landscape features, and stormwater drainage facilities for both phases.
- 2018-2019: Environmental survey, geotech study, design, right-of-way acquisition
- 2020-2022: Right-of-way acquisition, develop final design
- 2023: Construction
The process of developing road projects takes several years. Many factors must be considered, including: location of homes; public right-of-way; stormwater runoff, drainage and water quality; wetlands and buffers; hilly terrain; sight distance; soils; traffic volumes; accident history; vehicle and pedestrian access; location of utilities; and information that residents provide about the area. Full funding for construction has not yet been obtained.
