Council agrees to pursue new scope for Highway 99: installing landscaped medians for safety

Since approving a plan in 2017 to revitalize the 2.3-mile portion of Highway 99 that runs through Edmonds, city council members and staff have been faced with a brutal reality: Funding for the entire project would be hard to come by. The city used approximately $400,000 of the $1 million in advanced funds to complete initial Highway 99 planning and design work with assistance from consultant SCJ Alliance.
