Denny's will see its driveway restored this week.

Concrete Pouring West of I-5 While Work Begins on the East Side

The coming week will see lots of concrete work around the 128th St. SW construction area as crews pour and finish sidewalks and continue to restore driveways to businesses west of I-5.

More concrete will be poured on Nov. 1 and Nov. 6 to complete the retaining wall near Denny’s.

If needed, the current right lane will close for short periods. These closures, if any, will occur only on weekdays between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Work on westbound 128th (east of I-5) begins with a retaining wall next to the northbound I-5 on-ramp and the removal of trees near Quality Inn. Tree cutting and removal is scheduled for Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.

Seaway Transit Center Buildings Begin to Emerge on site

Seaway Transit Center Buildings Beginning to Take Shape

Buildings are beginning to take shape on the Seaway Transit Center construction site — underground, anyway.

Underground utilites have been installed in a building that will house the transit center’s mechanical functions.

Roadside construction continues as follows:

Seaway Blvd.
A bus pullout area and curbs are still being constructed along the northbound lanes of Seaway Blvd.

Lane closures are unlikely, but if needed will occur only on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.

75th Street SW
Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction every weekday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. to allow for curb work, driveway reconstruction and lane widening.

Westbound temporary bus stops remain open; the eastbound Everett Transit bus stop remains closed.

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.
