Swift Green Line Station Construction

Lane Closures and Temporary Bus Stops Mark the Beginning of Station Construction

The first phase of Swift Green Line station construction will begin Sunday, Nov. 12  at 8 p.m. on Airport Road, from Highway 99 north to Kasch Park Road.

Periodic lane closures and bus stop relocations

Beginning Nov. 12, the following intersections will have periodic right-hand lane closures, sometimes during the day and sometimes at night.

  • Northbound, Airport Rd. and Hwy. 99
  • Northbound, Airport Rd. and 100th  Street SW
  • Northbound, Airport Rd. and 112th  Street SW
  • Northbound, Airport Rd. and Kasch Park Rd.
  • Southbound, Airport Rd. and Hwy. 99

Bus stops serving these intersections will be temporarily relocated, affecting Community Transit Route 105 and Everett Transit Routes 2 and 8. Other stops along these routes will remain in their regular location.

Daytime and nighttime work planned

Daytime work hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Monday-Friday) and include installing power conduits and junction boxes, foundations for bus landing pads, and curbs and sidewalks.

Nighttime work hours are 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. (Sunday-Thursday) and include saw cutting, demolition and grading.

Construction will be completed in phases

Swift stations will be constructed in stages, beginning with underground utility work and concrete platform installation, then station structure installation and installation of various customer features.

Weather protection and features at each station

Each Swift station will be highly visible, unique structures with weather protection, seating, adequate lighting, real-time next bus signs, ticket vending machines and ORCA card readers, and a rider information kiosk.

128th Street SW Construction

New traffic signals coming soon on eastbound 128th St. SW.

Signals to be Installed on Eastbound 128th Street SW

Construction crews are ready to install new traffic lights at eastbound 128th Street SW at the on-ramp to southbound I-5.

Signal installation will occur in the early morning hours of Wednesday, Nov. 15. Lanes will be closed and police officers will direct traffic.

The signal is in anticipation of a new bus-only lane approaching I-5.

Meanwhile, crews are also completing driveways, gutters and curbs on the south side of 128th St. west of I-5. The right-hand lane of eastbound 128th St. will continue to be closed intermittently between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays.

Near Denny's, concrete for a retaining wall has been partially poured. If weather permits, the rest of the wall will be poured this week.

Information about the 128th Street project is online at www.communitytransit.org/128th.

Transit Center Structures Being Built While Roadwork Continues

Foundation walls are built and infrastructure (conduits for electricity, plumbing, etc.) is being placed underground for the transit center's mechanical operations building.

Expected traffic impacts this week are:

Seaway Blvd.: Right northbound lane will close as needed, weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.

75th Street SW: One lane in each direction will close as needed, weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Swift Green Line Overview

Swift Bus - Welcome Aboard

Swift Green Line Will Create County's First High-Capacity Transit Network

Swift is Community Transit's bus rapid transit (BRT) service. Bus rapid transit is rail-like service that gets people where they need to go faster than regular buses. There are fewer stops and fare is paid at the station before boarding. 

The Swift Green Line will connect with the existing Swift Blue Line at Highway 99 & Airport Road. This establishes Snohomish County's first high-capacity transit network, which will eventually include more Swift lines and Link light rail.

The Swift Green Line will open for service in early 2019.
