Snohomish County invites residents to join elected officials and staff members at a Tambark Creek Park ribbon cutting event to celebrate the completion of the first phase of 35th Ave SE Corridor Improvements at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, June 25, 2019.

Construction on the heavily-traveled road adding bike lanes, center turn lanes, planter strips, sidewalks, and stormwater detention/treatment from Seattle Hill Road to 180th Street SE started on June 4, 2018.

These improvements were designed to provide better traffic flow and to ease congestion, as well as providing additional safety for bike riders and pedestrians.

Surface water runoff from 35th Avenue will now be detained and treated before entering salmon bearing streams.

Snohomish County reported that the total project cost is approximately $9 million. Since the county received about $7 million in state and federal grants, it cost local taxpayers about $2 million for the road improvements.

Phase two of the 35th Avenue SE Corridor Improvement project will continuing the work from 180th Street SE south to Maltby Road (SR 524).

The county is now working on the phase two detailed design, survey, environmental review, and right-of-way acquisition.

Phase two construction is currently scheduled to begin in 2020, but the start date is subject to the county receiving enough funding for the project.
