November 2021 Update - Completed
The final Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) device was installed at the intersection of Airport Rd and 100th St SW in mid November. In early October, a car accident damaged one of the new signals and a replacement has been on backorder. All ADA sidewalk projects along Airport Rd are now complete.
Snohomish County Public Works will begin work in mid-August to install Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) devices and upgrade six ramps along Airport Rd at the intersections of 100th St SW and 94th St SW in Everett. Upgraded ramps include detectable warning surfaces and APS pushbuttons that prompt audio cues to help pedestrians who are vision impaired to cross the intersections safely.
Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-August and will last approximately 10 days. Work will occur Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Crews will be practicing COVID-19 prevention protocols during this project. Please maintain six-foot social distancing.
- Drivers should expect minimal delays during the day. There will be single lane closures, but two-way traffic will still be functioning.
Bus stops at project locations may be temporarily relocated within a close distance from normal stops. This affects Everett Transit northbound and southbound stops, one TransWest shuttle stop, and Swift northbound and southbound stops. Access to the Swift card reader for pedestrians will be maintained throughout the project.
- Pedestrian access to crosswalks will be available throughout construction.
Funding for the $203,000 project will come from the Snohomish County Road Fund.
