  • WSDOT installed a median barrier on US 2 from Bickford Avenue to just east of the SR 9 interchange in Snohomish. The barrier was completed in April 2021. 
  • The 2015 Connecting Washington transportation package allocated $17 million for corridor safety improvements. Analysis and design work will begin in 2019 with construction of identified improvements scheduled to start in 2022.

WSDOT invested nearly $60 million from 2008-2017 to build more than a dozen safety and traffic improvement projects on US 2 between Everett and Stevens Pass after it was designated a traffic safety corridor. 

WSDOT and a community-based task force identified these projects as part of the US 2 Route Development Plan (RDP), which was completed in November 2007. The RDP identified areas where improvements can enhance safety, traffic flow and reduce collisions on US 2. There were 55 projects in the RDP. Several other projects that were not part of the plan were also completed.
