As a part of Lynnwood’s 36th Avenue West Improvements Project, road closures will be in effect through mid-March on 179th Street Southwest from 36th Avenue West to 33rd Place West.

From Feb. 18 through mid-March, the road closures will be in effect while crews construct a one-mile-long corridor improvement project on 36th Avenue West from Maple Road/179th Street Southwest to 165th Place Southwest.

Local access will be maintained for residents on 178th Place Southwest.

Planned improvements include:

  • Additional road lanes in isolated locations
  • Continuous sidewalks
  • Landscape features
  • Bicycle facilities
  • A new traffic signal is planned for the 36th/Maple Road/179th intersection
  • A new roundabout is planned for the 36th/172nd intersection

The city has received federal grants of approximately $4.6 million to complete design and right-of-way acquisition and a $4 million state grant from Transportation Improvement Board to complete construction. The city has also committed over $6.6 million of local funds to this project.

Additional information about the 36th Avenue West Improvements Project can be found on the city project webpage.
