NO to the Right-of-Way Plan for 14th Ave W Extension: 220th St SE to Locust Way

Snohomish County is proposing to route most of the traffic from Locust Way to 228th St SW through a residential neighborhood. This will bring arterial traffic with increased noise, headlight glare, and greatly increase the risk of accidents. Why? To shave off about 30-seconds of commute time for residents living north on Locust Way and promote more development.

This project, costing over $3-million, will destroy a valuable wetland and wildlife habitat. Wetland mitigation is proposed in Little Bear Creek, where it will not mitigate the impacts to Swamp Creek.

What can you do?
