Snohomish County and its partner cities and agencies have been awarded more than $31 million in the 2012 federal transportation funding round recently completed by the Puget Sound Regional Council.
Along with required local matches, this funding will allow for $45 million in road repairs and improvements and transit service throughout Snohomish County.
“This county’s ability to receive such a high level of funding means better and safer roads for our residents,” said Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon. “These are competitive grant dollars and can be very hard to come by.”

Also included for funding is work on the North Road Corridor, scheduled to begin in late 2013.
Of the total funding, more than $11 million was awarded to Snohomish County Public Works for the following list of projects:
