Lynnwood is in line for millions in transportation dollars

Now is the time to voice your support for a series of projects aimed at improving transportation in Lynnwood.

The Puget Sound Regional Council is recommending $9.85 million in funding for projects throughout the city, part of more than $440 million in federal funds to be invested throughout the region.

Projects in the Lynnwood area include:

  • 196th St SW (SR524) Improvement Project – BAT (Business Access and Transit) Lanes and Boulevard – $1,730,000
  • 44th Ave W (192nd to 172nd) and 36th Ave W (192nd to 188th) Pavement Preservation – $676,000
  • SR-99 and 204th Street SW Improvement Project – $913,500
  • Ash Way Park & Ride Rehabilitation (Community Transit)  – $1,600,000
  • Commuter Service to Regional Growth Centers (Community Transit)  – $2,240,000
  • Lynnwood to Northgate Link Light Rail Extension (Sound Transit) – $2,691,969

“These projects were selected on their merits and support the region’s economic development and growth,” said Bellevue City Councilmember Claudia Balducci, chair of PSRC’s Transportation Policy Board.  “When Congress approved these funds earlier this year, their focus was on growing and sustaining jobs.  These projects, large and small, will put people to work and shore up the foundations of our economy for the future.”

PSRC is encouraging public comments on the projects. The comment period ends Oct. 25. The vote by PSRC’s Executive Board to approve the 2013-2016 Transportation Improvement Program is scheduled for the same day.

A complete list of all projects and more information is available at PSRC website.
