The Transportation Benefit District Board is launching a community survey later this spring. Send an email to: with your name and email address and the city will send a link to the survey.

A Transportation Benefit District is a Quasi-municipal corporation and independent taxing district created for the sole purpose of funding transportation improvements within the district. A TBD is created by ordinance of legislative authority (county or city) and may include other counties, cities, port districts, or transit districts through Inter-local agreements.

In 2010, the TBD Board enacted a $20 vehicle registration fee (for each eligible vehicle registered in Lynnwood). The $20 vehicle registration fee went into effect on July 1, 2011 and generates approximately $420,000 annually for transportation projects. The projects to be funded (in whole or in part) include:

  • City of Lynnwood Street Fund 111 (operation and maintenance)
  • Pavement Overlay Program
  • Traffic Signal Rebuild Program
  • Traffic Signal Reconstruction: Scriber Lake Road at 196th Street SW
  • 48th Avenue W Sidewalk: 183rd Place SW to 180th Street SW
