Sound off of Highway 99 gateway signs in Edmonds
Last updated 9/5/2021 at 2:54pm
What kind of gateway signs would you like to see on the northern and southern city limits on Highway 99? Vertical? Horizontal? Fancy? Plain, yet functional?
The City of Edmonds is now contemplating architectural sign types, lettering style, messages, lighting, and landscaping several designs, and you can provide input.
"We are in the visioning process and, with your help, we can better understand what makes Edmonds special," said transportation engineer Bertrand Hauss.
On March 2, the City Council approved agreement with HBB Landscape Design for the design of the signs, as well as Clayton Moss of Forma.
Construction is expected next year.
A community workshop Aug. 4 provided general project information. Following the meeting, an online survey had with questions regarding the conceptual design of those signs.
The survey remains open, and the City is invites the public to complete this short survey (takes less than 10 minutes) in order to provide input on the general sign layout.
The deadline for completing the survey is Sept. 15.
To access the survey: surveymonkey.com/r/hwy99cm1.
The gateway signs will be constructed and installed with the stage two of the upcoming Highway 99 revitalization and gateway project.
In addition to the gateway signs, the project will convert the existing center two-way left turn lane from 244th Street SW to 212th Street SW to a raised median, with mid-block left-turn pockets along certain sections.
This will also include landscaped median and traffic curb, along other sections to improve safety along the entire corridor.
The current schedule is to complete the design phase of this project in early 2022, and the construction phase in late 2022.
