An environmental survey and geotech study will begin during fall 2018, with the design phase for this project scheduled for completion during early 2019. Right-of-way acquisition will begin in 2019. The schedule to construct the County’s section of the project is subject to availability of funding, which has not yet been obtained.
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 165th Place 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.
2018-2019: Environmental survey, geotech study, develop final design, right-of-way acquisition
Construction is subject to funding availability
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. Funding for construction has not yet been obtained.
An environmental review of this project was completed in 2016 in compliance with the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) document, the Categorical Exclusion Documentation (CED) form was adopted, together with discipline reports prepared for the project.
