    US 2 - Everett Port/Naval Station to SR 9 Corridor Planning Study

    Status

    July 2014

    • The draft report is being reviewed within WSDOT. The final report is expected to be released in summer of 2014.

    WSDOT has partnered with Snohomish County, the city of Everett and other local agencies to conduct a transportation study on US 2 between the cities of Everett and Snohomish. The goal of the study is to examine safety and mobility issues along this important section of highway and develop recommendations that address increasing population and employment growth in the areas of Everett, Snohomish, Marysville, Lake Stevens and surrounding communities in Snohomish County.

    Why is WSDOT doing a study on this section of US 2?

    US 2 is an important United States route that stretches across Washington State and east to the Atlantic Ocean. This study will examine the first five miles of the US 2 route beginning at Interstate 5 in Everett and ending at State Route 9 in Snohomish with particular focus on the US 2 trestle and its connections to I-5, SR 204, the Port of Everett, and the Everett Naval Base located on the far western edge of Everett at Port Gardner.

    Rapid growth of the local area has caused an influx of traffic on US 2 and other once rural roads in Snohomish County. Over the next 15 years communities in Snohomish County are expected to grow to 337,000, reflecting a population increase of 54 percent. The corridor study will help us identify mobility issues along this section of US 2 and develop recommendations that address increasing population and employment growth.

    The End Result
    Recommended investments will consider mobility strategies that improve corridor operational efficiency, better manage user demand, and identify locations that require strategic capacity expansion when other strategies fail to address congestion. Recommendations will be prioritized into lower, medium, and higher cost options that can be implemented incrementally as funding becomes available from a variety of funding sources.

    Project Benefits
    Our findings will be included in a corridor plan for US 2 that will help decision makers and the State determine the best way to meet current and future travel needs.

    What is the project timeline?

    • Winter 2012 - The DRAFT report will be reviewed by WSDOT and stakeholders.
    • Spring 2013 - Study report is expected to be released.
