Expected lane closures Monday for Lynnwood Transit Center construction

LYNNWOOD, Wash., February 18, 2023—Lynnwood residents, commuters, and businesses are advised to expect lane closures beginning Monday, February 20, 2023, on sections of 200 St SW for 8 to 12 weeks for Phase One construction on the Transit and Traffic Circulation Improvements Project.

Because traffic is expected to increase in the area with the upcoming Lynnwood Transit Center in 2024, the City of Lynnwood and Sound Transit have decided to expand 200th Street to include five lanes between 44th and 48th avenues. This is major east-west transportation route for the City of Lynnwood running parallel to 196th Street.

Resident and businesses should expect curb and sidewalk demolition, roadway demolition, roadway and sidewalk grading, duct bank installation, water hydrant, meter and light pole installation, tree removal, landscaping, striping, driveway construction, and traffic signal poles.
