Snohomish County plans to improve Seattle Hill Road between 132nd Street SE and 35th Avenue SE. The preliminary plan is to widen the roadway to three lanes and add a center turn lane. Bike lanes, curb and sidewalk are also planned along the road. The corridor is an important commuter route for Snohomish County residents, and has received intermittent improvements in the past as nearby residential developments have been built.
The process of developing road projects takes several years. Many factors must be considered. They include: location of homes and public right-of-way; wetlands, stormwater runoff, drainage and water quality; Critical Area Regulations (CAR); Design Standards; terrain; sight distance; soil compaction; traffic volumes; accident history; location of utilities; and information that residents provide about the area.
