Project Description

This project 1. Multimodal Grid System All modes will be redistributed onto underutilized streets, thereby helping to maintain the efficiency of the City Center roadway grid system. 2. Improved Transit Connections The bridge over I-5 will increase capacity for the existing bus network system, reduce congestion, and facilitate service to the City Center, new Sound Transit Light Rail stations, and West Alderwood Mall. 3. Reduced I-5 Congestion Traffic volumes on 196th Street SW (SR 524) will be reduced, minimizing the potential for the off-ramps to back up onto I-5. Reducing congestion on I 5 is anticipated to reduce crash rates as well as greenhouse gas emissions. 4. Improved City Center Access The anticipated LOS in the project area at the year of opening is LOS C. An additional point of access will improve ingress and egress for the City Center and Alderwood. In addition, traffic along the overly congested Alderwood Mall Parkway will be reduced by 37 percent and redistributed to the new bridge. 5. Added Freight Capacity and Improved Freight Mobility The new connection over I-5 will add freight capacity via the direct connection between I-5, I-405, and 196th Street SW, improving freight access routes into the Lynnwood City Center, Alderwood Mall, several Regional Growth Centers (RGCs) and Manufacturing Industrial Centers (MICs), and multiple ferry terminals.
