SR 9 - SR 204 Intersection Improvements


Sept. 2016

  • Mark your calendar: Our first public open house is on Oct. 19, 2016 from 6-8 p.m. in the Hillcrest Elementary School Cafeteria at 9315 4th St SE, Lake Stevens, WA 98258. Share your comments on improvements needed at the SR 9/SR 204 intersection.
  • We formed a community advisory group with Lake Stevens residents, business owners, and transportation experts to seek advice on the project design. The first meeting was on August 16, 2016.

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.

In 2015, the legislature provided funding for WSDOT to fully evaluate the intersection and develop design options and improvements. The project includes a robust community involvement program, which includes two public open houses where attendees can comment on the project.

The End Result
The end result will be a preferred design option for the SR 9/SR 204 intersection that meets the project needs and incorporates input gathered through public outreach and meetings.

Project Benefits

  • Improved mobility. Consider multimodal solutions which may improve traffic flow, trip reliability, and safety.
  • Improved access. Creates better access to nearby businesses.
  • Multi-modal. Considers all modes of transportation that pass through or around the intersection, including transit, freight, and bike and pedestrian traffic.
  • 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 through early 2017 – Public outreach and design options development
  • 2017 to 2018 – Further design work and land acquisition will follow decision on preferred design option
  • Construction tentatively scheduled for 2018 or 2019 depending on the design option selected
