Alderwood Mall Parkway Corridor Improvements


Snohomish County Public Works proposes to widen Alderwood Mall Parkway from the 16800 block to the SR 525 northbound ramps. The project would widen the road to five lanes, including a center turn lane, raised bike lanes, sidewalks, gutters, curbs, drainage facilities, three fish-passage culverts, and new traffic signals at the SR 525 northbound ramps intersection. Snohomish County is also planning to overlay Alderwood Mall Parkway from 164th St SW south to the Lynnwood city limits at the same time as the widening project.


  • 2019-2020: Completed field survey, preliminary design and environmental studies
  • 2021-2023: Design, environmental review, right of way acquisitions and utility relocations
  • 2024: Construction to begin

Traffic Impact

Single lane closures will be utilized during construction and business access will be available during the project.


The project cost is estimated at $13 million and will be funded by the Snohomish County Road Fund, Mitigation Funds, and Surface Transportation Program (STP) Funds. In addition, this project has received $2.58 million in grant funding from the Federal Highway Administration and a $3 million loan from the Washington State Public Works Board. 

Environmental Review

A SEPA determination will be made later in 2022.
