1. Everett Station Nonmotorized Access Improvements (Everett)

1. Everett Station Nonmotorized Access Improvements (Everett)

Project Overview:

This project will improve the comfort and safety of people walking and biking in the neighborhood by creating a safe and comfortable walking and biking route with clear wayfinding from Everett Station to Downtown Everett at the corner of the Angel of the Winds Arena. Project elements include lighting, sidewalks, marked bikeways, and signage along both sides of the almost 2,000-foot corridor. Everett Station is the multi-modal hub of Snohomish County, with multiple local, regional, and interstate transit connections. While today the adjacent neighborhood is characterized by parking lots and light industrial uses, the City of Everett recently changed zoning in the neighborhood to allow for 11- to 25-story buildings to support residential, retail, and office uses.

2. Park Avenue Pedestrian Improvements (Mukilteo)

2. Park Avenue Pedestrian Improvements (Mukilteo)

Project Overview:

This project includes preliminary design of a connection between the waterfront promenade, Front Street, the Ferry Terminal, and the Sounder Station. It will transform Park Avenue from a car-oriented street to a pedestrian oriented woonerf (a street where all users—pedestrians, bicyclists, autos—share space). Park Avenue has a substandard sidewalk with utility poles compromising Americans with Disabilities Act compliance on the west side of the street, no bicycle facilities, no landscape buffers, and no pedestrian facilities on the east side of the street.

5. Ash Way Direct Access Ramps and Interstate 5 Crossing (Snohomish County)

5. Ash Way Direct Access Ramps and Interstate 5 Crossing (Snohomish County)

Project Overview:

This project will fund 30% design for a project that will address access barriers to the Ash Way Transit Center and the future Ash Way light rail station caused by the congested 164th/Interstate 5 interchange. It will expand nonmotorized connections across Interstate 5, connecting Ash Way with the Interurban Trail and other activity centers on the east side of the freeway. It will complete the north portion of the transit-only direct access connection, improving connections to Everett and other destinations to the north. This project is a primary recommendation of the county’s East/West Corridor High Capacity Transit Study and is included in the county’s public outreach process for the Light Rail Communities project and comprehensive plan.

6. Scriber Creek Trail Redevelopment (Lynnwood)

6. Scriber Creek Trail Redevelopment (Lynnwood)

Project Overview:

This project upgrades an existing 1.5-mile trail into a Class 1 shared-use path. This phase will construct approximately 2,000 linear feet of trail, establishing an elevated structure where appropriate and will connect the Lynnwood Transit Center to the closest residential neighborhood, parks, and an important employment center. The project will improve bicycle and pedestrian access to the planned light rail station where demand for parking will exceed supply, even with almost 2,000 parking stalls. When complete, the bicycle accessible trail will accommodate a variety of uses and people of all ages and abilities, improve access to the city’s parks, and increase pedestrian and cyclist access to transit.

7. Citywide Bicycle Improvements (Edmonds)

7. Citywide Bicycle Improvements (Edmonds)

Project Overview:

This project adds bike lanes and sharrows (pavement markings indicating that the travel lane should be shared with bicycles) along multiple corridors through road diets and other striping revisions on 100th Avenue W/9th Avenue N, Bowdoin Way, and 80th Avenue W, and roadway widening on 228th Street SW. These improvements will further enhance the existing bike network and complete new east-west/north-south bike connections to key destinations in Edmonds and adjacent jurisdictions.

8. 228th Street SW Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements (Edmonds)

8. 228th Street SW Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements (Edmonds)

Project Overview:

This project adds a two-way left turn lane, sidewalk, and bike lanes on both sides of 228th Street SW between 78th Avenue W and 95th Place W. This one-mile stretch is unwelcoming for pedestrians and cyclists due to the absence of sidewalks and bike lanes and limited shoulder width and drainage ditches. This project links Highway 99 to State Route 104 and will provide opportunities for residents living near 228th Street SW to reach various destinations safely and comfortably and may support the ability of Community Transit to provide bus service on the corridor.
