In 2018, the City of Lake Stevens received a WSDOT Regional Mobility Grant to construct facilities to assist westbound transit and high-occupancy vehicles (HOVs) along the corridor, during the morning peak traffic time. The 20th Street SE Business Access and Transit (BAT) Lane Widening Project will utilize the grant monies to construct an additional westbound lane for priority use by transit and HOVs, install certain traffic operations modifications and traffic signal enhancements, and provide additional pavement markings and signage. The project, extending from a point approximately 1,000 feet east of the US2 / SR204 Trestle Interchange to 91st Avenue SE is intended as an interim solution until such time that funding is available to widen the entire 20th Street SE corridor and reconstruct the Trestle Interchange. Below are the graphics shown at the open house on November 21, 2019.
