Scene in Lynnwood: Before and after, Harris Ford

What a difference a year makes. One year ago, Harris Ford in Lynnwood began construction of its Lincoln dealership building, along with closure of the road cutting through it (64th Avenue West). These photos, taken Sunday, Nov. 19, show the finished project.

Harris Ford, part of the Pierre Auto Group, is located at 20020 Highway 99 in Lynnwood.

  1. they did a nice job of redoing the dealership the only thing I don’t like is I miss going straight through to get onto 99 southbound it’s a lot harder and a lot more congested the way it is now than it was before

  2. I wonder when the right turn lane to get to 99 southbound will be completed? The curbing has been redone, but the poles have not been moved out of where the pavement is supposed to be for the turn lane. This was part of the agreement for closing 64th.

    1. Yes, 16 months later (that section of 64th was vacated during the first week of August, 2022), that project still hasn’t been completed. I’ve repeatedly brought my concerns up about this issue to the mayor and the city council. Unfortunately, no one at city hall seems to show much interest in the issue. Was the city or Harris Ford supposed to complete this project?

      Why exactly did the city give away a well-used city street without a plan and a timetable to complete this project? This is a less-than-impressive performance on the part of our city leaders.

    2. Regarding that pole, I spoke with someone from the mayor’s office last winter. A representative from the city’s transportation department called me to follow-up. He told me that rain was a factor in the construction delay. So what is the excuse at this point? We had a record dry spell this past summer, and nothing appears to have been completed during that time.
