Sen. Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens, said he was pleased Wednesday following the unveiling of the Senate’s bipartisan transportation budget which included $25.8 million in improvements to the State Route 9 corridor.
“Anyone who uses SR 9 knows there is room for improvement,” said Hobbs, vice co-chair of the Senate Transportation Committee. “This money will not only make those improvements, it will also lead to the creation of jobs and a quicker commute for thousands of people throughout Snohomish County.”
In the coming months, a number of improvements will be made to SR 9, which is quickly becoming one of the most traveled stretches of road for both commuters and commerce in the state. Several sections of the 98 miles span will see a widening of lanes, improved intersections, additional lanes and overall safety improvements.
You can see a complete list of on-going projects in the 44th Legislative District below. These projects are paid for through the 2005 TPA Projects account which is funded by the existing gas tax.
