Snohomish County Public Works has announced plans to upgrade access for pedestrians on Airport Road near Paine Field in south Everett next month.

Snohomish County will install Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) devices and improve six pedestrian ramps along Airport Rd at the intersections of 100th St SW and 94th St SW in Everett. Upgraded ramps feature detectable warning surfaces and APS pushbuttons which trigger audio cues alerting visually impaired pedestrians to begin crossing the intersection.

Traffic impacts will be minimal and last approximately 10 days:

Beginning in mid-August, crews will work Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
There will be single lane closures during construction, but two-way traffic will be functioning during and after construction hours.

Bus stops at project locations may be temporarily relocated within a close distance from normal stops. This affects Everett Transit northbound and southbound stops, one TransWest shuttle stop, and Swift northbound and southbound stops. Access to the Swift card reader for pedestrians will be maintained throughout the project.
Pedestrian access to crosswalks will be available throughout construction.
