Construct new street along the Laventure Road alignment extending south from Fowler St. and connecting to Blackburn Road. Project includes two travel lanes, turn lane, bike lanes, and sidewalks.
Why are we Building This Project?
The Anderson Laventure Extension Project is one of the most regionally significant transportation projects for Skagit County and the City of Mount Vernon.
On the east side of the City of Mount Vernon, there are no connected north-south arterial roadways. As a result, traffic travels west on either College Way or Kincaid Street to reach Interstate 5. Both of these arterials are extremely congested during peak hours, especially around the interchanges, and cause significant backups on I-5.
This phased project will construct a new arterial roadway, which connects South Laventure Road, an existing north-south arterial in eastern Mount Vernon, to the Anderson Road freeway interchange. This will provide an alternative route in the rapidly developing portions of eastern Mount Vernon and the surrounding County areas. The project also provides an alternate access to reach Sedro-Woolley, thus reducing congestion on Highway 20.
