We paved nearly two miles of State Route 9 from 56th Street SE to 60th Street NE. We also added turn lanes near 42nd Street NE, added lighting at eight intersections, and installed new guardrail and signs.
The new pavement provides a safe driving surface by eliminating cracks, potholes and rough patches. Drivers also benefit from upgrades to lighting, guardrails, and signs.
The wider roadway will accommodate more traffic, and the new turn lanes will improve traffic flow.

The new drainage systems and a new detention pond at 42nd Street will help capture and clean runoff water.
Partnerships & Cooperation
In March 2005 we awarded the project to the most competitive bidder: contractor Wilder Construction of Everett. Construction began in spring 2005 and was completed in summer 2006.
This project was exempt from Section 106 tribal consultation because the work took place on existing roadway and within existing interchanges and medians.
This project was funded through the following fund sources.
- Existing State Funds - $3,490,000
- Other Agency Funds - $130,000
- Total Funding From All Sources - $3,620,000
