EVERETT, Wash., February 19, 2020 – The Snohomish County 2019 Public Works Annual Report: Public Works for All Seasons is now available online. This year’s report is presented as an interactive story map.
“Our services were front and center during all four seasons of 2019,” Snohomish County Public Works Deputy Director and County Engineer Doug McCormick said. “From our work plowing county roads during February to replacing culverts in the summer and streamlining our solid waste services, this annual report shows the expanse of our work last year and how those services benefit our residents.”
County employees worked on numerous road and surface water-related construction projects during 2019. Public Works completed the 35th Ave SE – Phase I and 196th/Grannis Rd improvement projects, Road Maintenance crews helped to preserve and repair the county’s more than 1,600 miles of roads, and Surface Water Management completed construction on the Mid-Spencer Island Estuary Restoration, among many other projects. Solid Waste processed more than 552,000 tons of garbage.
The report shows how public resources were utilized in 2019 and how the county leveraged local, state and federal grants to stretch local tax dollars.
The digital document links to many of the county’s web pages for more information about specific projects and services.
