$1.2M project to create safer, more efficient intersection begins today

LYNNWOOD – The light is green for the installation of a traffic signal at an increasingly busy intersection in Lynnwood.

Today, July 17, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will begin a $1.2 million intersection improvement project where the southbound State Route 525 off-ramp meets Alderwood Mall Parkway. The intersection also includes an on-ramp to southbound SR 525, where drivers can access southbound Interstate 5 and I-405.

“More and more vehicles are using Alderwood Mall Parkway and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find safe gaps in the traffic to make left turns at the intersection,” said WSDOT Project Engineer Dave Lindberg. “A traffic signal is expected to reduce collisions, improve traffic flow and increase safety.”

Intersection improvements
In addition to the installation of a traffic signal, crews with Totem Electric of Tacoma, Inc., will:

  • Restripe both the off- and on-ramps, along with Alderwood Mall Parkway through the intersection.
  • Install a crosswalk on the east side of the intersection.
  • Rebuild two pedestrian ramps at the intersection to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines.

Lane closure information

  • Starting Monday, July 17, there may be lane closures between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. overnight Sundays through Thursdays on the southbound SR 525 off-ramp and Alderwood Mall Parkway.
  • All traffic at the intersection may be held for up to 15 minutes at a time between 1 and 4 a.m. Mondays through Fridays near the completion of the project.
  • For updated closure information, drivers can check our Snohomish County Construction page.

Work is scheduled to be complete this fall.
