SR 9 - SR 204 Intersection Improvements


April 2017

  • On May 11, we will host our second open house to take public comment on several design options to improve this highly traveled intersection. The open house is from 6-8 p.m. at Hillcrest Elementary School at 9315 4th Street SE, Lake Stevens, WA 98258
  • The Stakeholder Advisory Group (city, county, business and regional representatives) continues to meet to review design options. 
  • Sign up for email updates for this project and other Snohomish County projects.

In 2015, the legislature provided funding for WSDOT to improve the State Route 9 and State Route 204 intersection in Lake Stevens.

The project team is currently developing design concepts for the SR 9/SR 204 interchange using input from community stakeholders and area drivers. 

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 alternative 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 to local businesses.
  • More choices for travel options by improving transportation connections for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders and drivers.


What is the project timeline?

  • 2015: Project funded through Connecting Washington funding package
  • 2016 to early 2017: Public outreach and design options development
  • Mid-2017: Select preferred alternative
  • 2017 to 2018: Project design
  • 2018 or 2019: Construction starts (dependent on the design option selected).
