Stormwater Vault and Drainage System Progresses On Schedule

Construction on the new Seaway Transit Center continues, making notable progress on the stormwater vault and drainage system on site, and on a concrete retaining wall along the south property line.

Road work continues, affecting traffic as follows:

Seaway Blvd. 

The northbound lanes of Seaway Blvd. have been narrowed, and there will be lane closures as needed. Work will continue in this area to install stormwater drainage, a bus pullout area and new curbs. 

Any lane closures that are needed will be scheduled for 8:30 a.m. or later. 

75th Street SW 

Traffic on 75th Street SW will narrow to one lane each way as needed for the next two weeks. Flaggers will be posted to direct traffic and assist pedestrians. Digging for traffic pole foundations will be done at this time. 

Information about the Seaway Transit Center is online at www.communitytransit.org/seaway.

Swift Green Line Service Map

Swift Green Line to Connect Bothell and Paine Field

Swift is Community Transit's Bus Rapid Transit service. 

Washington State’s first bus rapid transit line opened in November 2009. The Swift Blue Line serves a 17-mile route between Everett and Shoreline. It provides fast, frequent and reliable service whether you are traveling from Everett to Lynnwood, Edmonds to Shoreline or anywhere in between. 

The Swift Green Line will serve a 12.5-mile route between Paine Field/Boeing and Canyon Park/ Bothell. It is expected to begin service in early 2019. 

The Swift Green Line will provide appealing choices for people to travel without a car. Because stations are further apart and fares are paid at the station, Swift buses offer rail-like quickness. 

Not only will this route offer fast, frequent service to those living or working between Bothell and Boeing, but the connection to the Swift Blue Line will greatly expand the ease of transit use in our region. 

The Swift Green Line will cross the Swift Blue Line at Airport Road and Highway 99, establishing a Swift network. 

More Swift lines to the north and east of our county are planned for the future.
