The existing system at 196th Street Southwest and Scriber Lake Road does not meet current design/safety standards and has exceeded its serviceable life.
The project design began in 2006 but was shelted at 90 percent completion due to lack of available construction funds. Lynnwood later was awarded a $300,000 federal grant for the construction phase of the project. Upon receipt of the grant, project design and right of acquisition was finalized.
The installation of the new traffic signal is expected to be completed by early fall 2014.
At its Monday meeting, the City Council authorized the Mayor to sign contracts with Kamins Construction for the installation of the new traffic signal, KBA of Bellevue for construction management and material testing services and DKS Associates of Seattle for on-call engineering construction support services.
