Year-long series looks at ways to alleviate traffic congestion
EVERETT, Wash., April 19, 2017—All of us want better ways around traffic congestion! On Wednesday, April 26, 2017 learn how the State of Washington addresses congestion. Lorena Eng, Regional Administrator of Washington State Department of Transportation’s (WSDOT) Northwest Region, will speak on this topic 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).
Ms. Eng has been the Northwest Region Administrator since 2001 and currently serves as WSDOT’s representative on Puget Sound Regional Council’s Growth Management Policy Board. Her April 26 presentation is sponsored by Snohomish County Tomorrow (SCT).
SCT is hosting a year of educational programs that 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 address congestion.
