SR 532 provides the only connecting route to the mainland for Camano Island, as well as the primary connection to and from I-5 for the city of Stanwood and surrounding rural northwest Snohomish County.
In the summer of 2009, we began construction on highway improvements. The majority of the project was completed by fall, 2010. During construction, we:
- Installed left-turn lanes at several intersections, constructed a westbound truck-climbing lane between 12th Ave NW and 28th Ave NW, and provided access control for driveways between 64th Ave NW and 12th Ave NW.
- Repaved between 104th Avenue NW and 98th Avenue N.W. and installed left- and right-turn lanes at selected intersections, constructed an eastbound truck-climbing lane between Pioneer Highway and 72nd Ave NW, updated the sidewalks and driveways to meet ADA standards and added sidewalks. We also reconfigured the central business area to provide a shared bikeway and street parking.
- Replaced the SR 532 bridge with a wider and safer bridge. The new bridge provides a shared 14 foot lane to allow room for vehicle breakdowns without blocking traffic. We also constructed a westbound left-turn pocket at Eide Road.
- Installed left-turn lanes at select intersections and modified driveways to align with intersection improvements between N. Sunrise Blvd and Davis Slough.
