Washington State legislators passed a comprehensive transportation package before the session ended on March 10, 2022. The City of Lake Stevens advocated for several projects included in the 16-year $17 billion “Move Ahead Washington” package that residents and businesses will appreciate.
Highlighted projects include improvements to the US 2 Trestle securing almost $211 million, the South Lake Stevens Multi-Use Trail was granted $3 million for its buildout, as well as local funding options were added for cities to make improvements to local streets and roads provided voters agree.
The Washington State Department of Transportation is improving the intersections of State Highways 9 and 204. WSDOT is planning three extended closures during construction this summer. Closing Highway 9 will impact traffic and cause delays. Detours will be provided; however, motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes or avoid SR9 altogether. Residents can receive updated information through WSDOT’s page on this project at https://wsdot.wa.gov/Projects/SR9/SR204Improvements/default.htm.
