Improvements ahead for Lake Stevens and Snohomish County

By Diana Barreto

Spring has sprung! As 2018 continues to unfold, so too does the SR 9/SR 204 intersection improvements project. After three public open houses and continued input from the community and interested parties, the preferred intersection design option is moving forward.

The project team is excited to host an open house in two weeks to share the progress and a newly created animated video illustrating the improved functionality of the completed intersection.
The project itself is scheduled to start in 2019.
Plans are moving forward for improvements to the SR 9/SR 204 intersection in Lake Stevens.

Open house information
The open house will take place from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 16 at Hillcrest Elementary School in Lake Stevens. Come for the video, stay for the conversation with our staff and the local community. The video will play on a loop throughout the duration of the open house.

Background
Funded by the 2015 Connecting Washington funding package, we sought out best solutions to improve congestion at the SR 9/SR 204 intersection. Since 2016, we listened to the SR 9/SR 204 intersection improvements project Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG). Business owners and the Lake Stevens community came together to provide input and guidance on design options aimed at creating better connections for all roadway users of this intersection, including pedestrians, transit riders, bicyclists and drivers.

The advisory group is comprised of business owners and representatives, elected officials, transit and multi-modal agency representatives and residents who met eight times since summer 2016. We worked closely with stakeholders to define a project need statement; develop, analyze, and review potential solutions and reach consensus on a preferred design for the intersection.
