What will Highway 99 look like in Edmonds?
You can get a glimpse when the city of Edmonds has an open house 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, via Zoom at http://www.bit.ly/3dmpTHD.
The purpose of the Highway 99 Gateway & Revitalization, Stage 2 Project is to design and construct safety improvements and gateway signage along Highway 99 throughout Edmonds between 244th Street SW and 210th Street SW.
The plan is consistent with plans developed during stage 1.
The project will convert the existing two-way left turn lane to a raised median with mid-block left-turn pockets along certain sections, as well as landscaped raised median and C-Curb along other sections in order to improve safety along the entire corridor.
In addition, a High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) signal is proposed just north of 234th Street SW to provide an additional pedestrian crossing and improve pedestrian safety along the corridor.
Gateway signs will also be added at each end of the City of Edmonds frontage on Highway 99 to help travelers identify city limits and establish a consistent look that will be extended in future projects along this corridor.
