Snohomish County Tomorrow Program on Managing Traffic Congestion
Year-long series looks at ways to effectively address traffic congestion
EVERETT, Wash., February 15, 2017—Who wants better ways around traffic congestion? Pretty much everyone! Join us on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 to learn creative ways that the City of Bellingham addresses traffic congestion. For example, City standards measure the availability and adequacy of facilities in four important areas: pedestrian, bicycle, public transit and motorized vehicles.
Chris Comeau, a Bellingham Transportation Planner, will begin his presentation at 6:15 p.m. in Public Meeting Room #1 on the first floor of the Snohomish County Administration Building East (3000 Rockefeller Avenue, Everett). The presentation is sponsored by Snohomish County Tomorrow (SCT).
SCT is hosting a year of educational programs that will examine the factors contributing to traffic congestion and the measures that cities, the county, the region, and the State are currently taking to address it. The focus will be on innovative, effective ways to ease congestion, as well as what other agencies, businesses, and community members can do to help.
