EVERETT, Wash., Nov. 22, 2019 – To address continuing growth and traffic congestion in the area between the cities of Mill Creek and Bothell, Snohomish County Public Works is proposing a road improvement project on 43rd Ave SE/Sunset Dr to provide more north-south roadway capacity. An open house is scheduled to take place between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 5, at the Willis Tucker Community Park Activity Center, to discuss the status of the proposed project.
The proposed project design includes widening and connecting road sections on 43rd Ave SE/Sunset Rd between 180th St SE and Maltby Road (SR 524).
