Highway 99 Planning Project


arrow-b Project Overview

The Highway 99 corridor is a key feature of Edmonds. It is comprised of a two-mile stretch of Highway 99 (a state highway) and the land area around it. Parts of this corridor abut the jurisdictions of Shoreline, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, and Snohomish County. A new Highway 99 Subarea Plan project is underway to focus on a community vision and approaches for making long-term improvements to land use and transportation, while also retaining the positive characteristics of many parts of the corridor. Public information and participation are very important.
