Preview the final stage of the SR 9 and SR 204 improvement project in Lake Stevens at online open house

In-person open house set for June 22 in Lake Stevens; online virtual office hours offered too

LAKE STEVENS – This summer, the third stage of the years-long project to build four new roundabouts between the State Route 9 and State Route 204 intersections near Frontier Village in Lake Stevens will begin.

The addition of these roundabouts is part of an ongoing effort to improve safety and mobility in this busy and growing part of Lake Stevens. Since 2019, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation have also widened parts of SR 9 and added noise walls.

This $69.5 million project is funded by the 2015 Connecting Washington transportation funding package.

Visitors to the online open house can view the plans for the new roundabouts, learn more about the work already completed, help us improve our outreach, and find up to the date information about closures and detours.

What travelers can expect

Stage 3 of construction is set to begin later this summer and be complete by fall of 2023.
