SR 532 Baseline Study

Planning study news

Following the State Route 532 corridor sketch in 2017, several strategies and actions were outlined to keep the corridor working well and to address performance gaps including, but not limited to, further evaluation. This baseline analysis is intended to provide further evaluation before the implementation of any strategy. WSDOT, in partnership with several stakeholders including the City of Stanwood, Island County, Snohomish County, Island Transit, Community Transit and Island Regional Transportation Organization (IRTPO), is conducting an existing conditions analysis of the State Route 532 corridor between Terry’s Corner (MP 0.0) and Interstate 5 (MP 10.08).

Purpose

State Route 532 is the primary east-west corridor to Interstate 5 for the city of Stanwood, Camano Island and unincorporated areas of Snohomish County. Over the last several years, this area has experienced increased levels of vehicular and commercial truck traffic during peak travel periods. In addition, the Island Regional Transportation Planning Organization (IRTPO) and the city of Stanwood identified congestion as a major transportation and economic development concern in the region. To address these concerns, WSDOT Northwest Region Mount Baker Area is working with the city of Stanwood, IRTPO, Island County, Snohomish County, Island Transit and Community Transit to conduct a technical baseline analysis of SR 532 to determine if the corridor is meeting regional transportation performance expectations.
