SR 9 - SR 204 Intersection Improvements


Nov. 2016

  • Thank you to all who attended our first public open house on Oct. 19. We will hold a second open house in early 2017. More details to come in January.
  • On Oct. 26, we held our second meeting with the community advisory group with representatives from local businesses, freight, transportation and non-motorized groups.
  • Sign up for email updates featuring this project and other projects in Snohomish County.

In 2015, the legislature provided funding for WSDOT to fully evaluate the State Route 9 and State Route 204 intersection in Lake Stevens and develop design options and improvements. 

WSDOT will develop these options using traffic data and public input gathered from meetings of the community advisory committee and comments submitted at public open houses.

Why is WSDOT improving the SR 9/SR 204 intersection?
The intersection of State Route 9 and State Route 204 in Lake Stevens experiences congestion that affects Snohomish County commuters, freight mobility and access to local businesses.

The End Result
The initial planning phase will result in a preferred design option for the SR 9/SR 204 intersection that meets the project needs and incorporates community input.

Project Benefits

  • Improved mobility: Improves traffic flow, trip reliability, freight movement and safety
  • Improved access: Creates better access to nearby businesses
  • More choices: Generates more travel options by improving transportation connections for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders and drivers
  • Environment: WSDOT will design the SR 9/SR 204 improvements project to avoid or minimize and mitigate impacts to the environment

What is the project timeline?

  • 2016 to early 2017: Public outreach and design options development
  • 2017 to 2018: Further design work and land acquisition 
  • Mid-2017: Select preferred design option
  • 2018 or 2019: Construction starts (dependent on the design option selected)

Financial Information

As part of 2015 Connecting Washington funding package, the Washington State Legislature allocated $69.5 million for this project including environmental study, engineering, right-of-way acquisition and construction.
