After county crews repaved 164th Avenue W, raised pavement markings that helped guide two lanes of turning traffic from 13th Avenue W were not replaced. Gary Noble, of Lynnwood, sees a need for them to return.
“Unfortunately, some people in the left lane do not realize the right lane also can turn left, so they tend to drift into the middle and sometimes right lane of 164th as they turn,” Noble wrote.
Snohomish County Public Works listened to Noble’s concern, and crews plan to put in new bumpy things (totally a technical term — OK, not really).
“Our Road Maintenance Division is currently scheduled to replace the raised pavement markings at the earliest available opportunity,” wrote Steve Flude, Road Maintenance director. “This work will be performed as soon as weather permits.”
