What is the Edmonds Highway 99 project?

The City of Edmonds is crafting a vision and action plan to improve the Highway 99 area. We are working towards creating a vision to help guide the future of the corridor area, develop specific actions to bring positive changes to the community, and prioritize development to attract funds for future improvements. We need your help in creating a community-driven vision for the Highway 99 area to support prolonged economic prosperity in the area and create a better place for the Edmonds community to live, work, and play. 

 

The Project Area

The two-mile stretch of highway abuts other jurisdictions - Shoreline, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, and Snohomish County.

Why are we doing this project?

The purpose of the project is to build on previous studies of the Highway 99 area and craft a vision and action plan for making long-term improvements to land use and transportation, while also retaining the positive characteristics of many parts of the corridor. Highway 99 has changed in many ways over the years and will continue to grow and change, perhaps even in ways we can't imagine today. Planning ahead will help our community guide its future and make positive changes. 

This is why public participation is vital in creating a vision supported by the Edmonds community. We want to get your ideas on topics like:

  • How should the Highway 99 area look and function in the future?
  • How can the corridor be accessible to walker, transit-riders, and motorists?
  • What improvements should be prioritized?
  • What will help the corridor feel more connected with the rest of Edmonds?
  • How can the City build on the diversity and strength of the Highway 99 area and encourage more businesses, affordable housing, community health, safety, and other objectives?
  • What would help the area be an even better place to live, work, and play?
