Snohomish County Receives Grant for Construction of 35th

– Snohomish County Public Works’ ability to leverage local tax dollars with state and federal grants allows the department to stretch traditional funding sources and complete more projects. The county recently received notice that the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) has approved a $5 million grant for 35th Ave SE – Phase II. The grant enables Snohomish County to start construction on the project during spring 2020.

“Snohomish County works hard to improve safety and relieve chokepoints across its transportation network,” Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers said. “All of us spend too much time sitting in congestion, and this funding allows us to continue improving transportation infrastructure. We sincerely appreciate the support we receive from our funding partners such as the TIB.”

With the TIB grant, 35th Ave SE – Phase II is now fully funded. The project will add continuous center turn lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes, curbs, and gutters from State Route 524 to 180th St SE.

“This is an extremely important project in one of the fastest growing areas of the county,” Snohomish County Public Works Director Steve Thomsen said. “The improvements to 35th Ave SE between SR 524 and 180th St SE are critically important as it is a main north/south corridor between Mill Creek and Bothell.”

The 35th Ave SE – Phase I, Seattle Hill Rd, and 180th St SE – Phase I projects, all in the same area between Mill Creek and Bothell, also received TIB grants. The 35th Ave SE – Phase I and Seattle Hill Rd projects have been completed and 180th St SE – Phase I will begin construction during spring 2020.
