SR 99 Corridor (112th St SW to 148th St SW) - (#ROTRA4112)
SR 99 is a major north-south arterial through the west side of Snohomish County from the king-Snohomish County line to the City of Everett, where it becomes Evergreen Way. In 2009, Community Transit added the high-frequency Swift bus rapid transit service. A joint planning effort by Snohomish County; the Cities of Everett, Lynnwood, and Mukilteo; and Community Transit has been completed to plan for the areas adjacent to SR 99 as a multimodal corridor.
Project Goals and Objectives
- Significantly improve the performance of the corridor as an economic engine for the community that provides enhanced services, employment opportunities and improved property values.
- Enhance the livability of neighborhoods adjacent to SR99
- Improve the walkability, pedestrian comfort and aesthetics of
- Maximize the potential for redevelopment created by Swift bus rapid transit service (BRT)
Achieving these overarching goals will require changes along portions of the corridor while supporting existing activities along other portions. The approach taken in the planning is to develop mixed-use "nodes" around the Swift bus stops. The nodes will be generally characterized by a mix of higher intensity uses (including multifamily residences and services) in a pedestrian oriented setting and will:
- Provide more convenient access to transit and increase transit ridership, which will reduce vehicle miles travelled (VMT), vehicle
exhaust emissions and green house gas (GHG) production
- Enhance the quality of surrounding residential neighborhoods and
increase local commercial and community services
- Increase the local market for new and existing businesses
- Spur business and land use redevelopment
SR 99 Development Plan
Unincorporated Snohomish County Segment (March 2012)
The Evergreen Way/SR 99 Revitalization Plan is the result of a coordinated response to opportunities and challenges presented in the corridor. The Plan examines the segment of SR 99 in Everett and unincorporated Snohomish County from 41st Street SW to 148th Street SW.
The March 2012 report shown below is excerpt from the full plan, covering the segment of SR 99 from 148th Street SW to 112th Street SW in unincorporated Snohomish County and within the Cities of Everett, Mukilteo, and Lynnwood municipal urban growth areas (MUGA) where potential annexation has previously been discussed. The study area includes parcels within one-half mile of each Swift station and within one-quarter mile on each side of the highway in-between. The report includes numerous maps which resulted in a large file size; therefore, the document has been broken into sections for viewing on the web:
On June 22, 2011 a public meeting was held to present preliminary ideas for the future of the State Route 99 (SR99) corridor through unincorporated Snohomish County (112th St SW to 148th St SW) and to ask area residents and business owners for ideas and comments. Representatives from local government and transit agencies participated in the discussion with citizens.
