Damson Rd Sidewalk Extension (Hilltop Elementary)


Snohomish County Public Works will construct a five-foot wide sidewalk to fill the gap on the east side of Damson Road in front of Hilltop Elementary School in Lynnwood. Crews will remove any obstructions in the pedestrian route to construct an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant sidewalk. A five-foot wide planter strip, curb, gutter, and updated ADA ramps will also be installed. 

This project will provide a continuous pedestrian facility along Damson Rd near Hilltop Elementary. Snohomish County completed two other sidewalk gap projects in the area: Damson Rd Sidewalk Extension North of Hilltop Fire Station (2021) and Damson Rd Sidewalk Hilltop Fire Station (2018).


Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2023. Workdays and hours will be posted when available. 

Traffic Impact

  • Drivers should expect minimal delays during the day due to single-lane closures. 
  • Pedestrian assistance through the work zone will be available during construction hours. Access to the crosswalk will be available during non-construction hours. 
  • The project is expected to last one month.

Land Disturbing Activity (LDA) Permit

This project will require an LDA permit under Chapter 30.63B of the Snohomish County Code (SCC). The date of the LDA Application corresponds to the date of the Design Memorandum. 


The project is funded by a Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) grant and county Road Fund.
