Snohomish County Public Works is adding bike lanes, center turn lanes, planter strips, sidewalks and stormwater detention and treatment facilities to a stretch of 35th Ave SE. The project will improve traffic flow and help ease congestion during busy morning and afternoon commutes. Construction is expected to take two years and cost
$7.1 million, paid for by grants and the county road fund.
The city of Mill Creek is also reconstructing a section of 35th Ave SE further north from Snohomish County’s projects. The road is currently closed between 139th St SE and 144th St SE. Learn more on the project webpage.
