The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is developing a plan to identify short- and medium-term transportation improvements for the Highway 99 corridor from Southwest 168th Street to Airport Road.

Highway 99 in unincorporated Snohomish County is a busy corridor that serves as a major north-south alternative to Interstate 5 and connects Lynnwood, Everett, and other growing communities in Snohomish County. Community Transit operates the Swift Blue Line bus rapid transit service along the corridor, which provides high-frequency bus service between Shoreline and Everett, and additional transit improvements are planned along the corridor.

WSDOT is also developing a project along Highway 99 from 148th Street to Airport Road that will convert outside shoulders into Business Access Transit (BAT) lanes. BAT lanes are curb lanes used only by right-turning vehicles and buses. They help buses move more efficiently through traffic and provide better access for businesses. The project will also consider improvements in active transportation and multimodal safety. Your feedback will help inform the scope of this project.

Visit the open day to learn more about the Corridor’s existing conditions, collision history, and the study itself before participating in a survey to share your thoughts on how the Corridor is or is not meeting your needs. The open house and online survey are available in English, Spanish and Korean.

The survey takes approximately five minutes to complete and will remain open until Friday, September 16.
