Congestion relief coming to SR 9 in south Snohomish
this spring

By B. Tanner

(SNOHOMISH, WA.) – It’s a fact of life that more people means more cars and more cars means more congestion. It’s like death and taxes. Never goes out of style, never goes away.

Just look at State Route 9 in Snohomish County. The Washington State Dept. of Transportation (WSDOT says the corridor is critical to the county’s commuter and commercial traffic, but has been bogged down with congestion in recent years from all the growth in the region.

Interim improvement project set to begin

The good news is, some relief is coming in the form of a $1.6 million interim project that will widen and restripe a portion of SR 9 in the Clearview area from 136th Street Southeast to SR 96 and create a second northbound lane. Work on the project hot underway Monday May 7.

In a recent statement about the project WSDOT said, “Extending the existing four-lane intersection another 1,500 feet will help increase capacity in the area and decrease delays during peak travel times.”

Lane closures
Crews will need nighttime single-lane closures to complete the work. People who travel through the area should expect most lane closures to be from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday through Thursday. Check the WSDOT website for details.

Snohomish County still growing
The county’s population jumped from about 713,000 to almost 758,000 between 2010 to 2015, according to data from Washington State. Current projections estimate the population could reach more than 900,000 by 2025.

To accommodate the boom, WSDOT crews already widened the highway to four lanes near Woodinville to the south and Marsh Road in the north. However, there’s still a 3-mile section in the middle between 176th Street Southeast and SR 96 that needs to be widened.

There are plans to widen that stretch, but there’s no funding for construction at the moment. “This interim project is far from a permanent solution, but it will improve congestion,” said the WSDOT statement.
