The US 2 Route Development Plan (RDP) is a list of safety and congestion relief improvement projects created by WSDOT with the help of local communities.
Working with our partners and local communities, we identified a list of 56 projects to enhance safety and reduce congestion for drivers along a 47-mile stretch of US 2 between Snohomish and Skykomish. The list provides a blueprint for legislators and local jurisdictions as they determine funding for future projects. In 2006 dollars, the planning level cost estimates for all of the projects exceed $1 billion.
To identify problems and solutions we examined:
- collision rates and locations
- population growth and future developement
- traffic flow
- environmental issues

The US 2 RDP team identified potential projects to improve safety on US 2. These short- and long-term projects could be built over the next 20 years as funding becomes available.
The US 2 RDP team identified potential projects to reduce congestion and keep traffic moving on US 2. These projects could be built over the next 20 years as funding becomes available.
Partnerships & Cooperation
The study team worked with the Corridor Working Group to identify problems and potential improvement projects. The Corridor Working Group is comprised of representatives from cities and towns along the US 2 corridor, Snohomish and King Counties, Community Transit, the Puget Sound Regional Council, and WSDOT.
We began studying US 2 in November 2005 and delivered the final RDP in November 2007.
This study was funded through the following funding sources:
• Federal Funds - $500,000
• Puget Sound Regional Council Rural Towns Corridors Grant - $100,000
• 2006 State Supplemental Budget - $700,000
