Easier transfers, safer bus service, new shelters and better lighting are just a few of the features Community Transit will be implementing in its Smokey Point Transit Center Redevelopment Project.
The redeveloped transit center will provide four new bus zones surrounding a new transit island and a new bus pullout on Smokey Point Blvd. Once completed, passengers will be able to comfortably and easily transfer between bus routes without having to cross Smokey Point Blvd. or 172nd Street.
In addition to the bus zones, the new facility will include these amenities: innovative bus shelters, well-lighted sidewalk and shelters, windscreens, bike facilities, security cameras and landscaping. There will be no public parking at this center.
The project is in its design stage. Community Transit has issued a determination of non-significance (DNS) under the State Environmental Policy Act Rules (Chapter 197-11 WAC) for this project. After review of a completed environmental checklist and other information on file with the agency, Community Transit has determined that this proposal will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment.
Construction is expected to begin in 2013. The project will use a mix of federal and local funds and is expected to cost about $2 million.
The existing Smokey Point Transit Center, located just west of Smokey Point Blvd. and north of 172nd Street, has provided minimal bus service since 2005 when a road development project on 172nd Street limited access to the Smokey Point Mall and transit center.
Community Transit operates several routes that connect Smokey Point with downtown Arlington, Marysville, Stanwood, Everett Station, Boeing and Lynnwood. The redeveloped transit center will provide safe connections to all these destinations, with room for future growth.
