From an April 8, 2021, Snohomish County Public Works press release.
The 35th Avenue SE corridor is an important north-south route for Snohomish County residents in a rapidly developing area of the county between Bothell and Mill Creek.
Snohomish County is scheduled to begin the second phase of the improvements to the 35th Avenue SE corridor between SR 524 and 180th Street SE beginning in April. The project is scheduled to be complete in fall 2022.
Single-lane closures for traffic will be needed along the route during construction. Signage will be used onsite prior to and during traffic revisions to inform drivers. The public is encouraged to use alternate routes during construction in order to reduce congestion through the work zone.
The improvements include bike lanes, center turn lanes, planter strips, sidewalks, and stormwater detention and treatment facilities.
The project will improve traffic flow and help ease congestion during busy morning and afternoon commutes. Addition of continuous center turn lanes will reduce delays caused by turning vehicles while the non-motorized facilities will add to the safe active transportation alternatives.
The first phase of these improvements was completed in June 2019 between 180th Street SE and Seattle Hill Road.
Utility companies have been working to relocate utilities in advance of the county’s project and will continue through the start of the project.
Public Works and the construction contractor will be practicing COVID-19 prevention protocols during this project. Please maintain six-foot social distancing if you walk through the construction area.
