Q Recently, you discussed the rework of the old Snohomish/Lowell River Road (see "Making the river road ready to roll," Aug. 10). I was wondering if there has been any thought about having a traffic light at the Snohomish end? Also, is it true that there will be a bicycle lane on this road?
A Jim Bloodgood, Snohomish County traffic engineer, said a traffic signal will be installed on the Snohomish side of the road. And the Lowell-Snohomish River Road will have 6-foot shoulders for bike traffic from the Everett city limits to the end of the new construction, about 2.5 miles, according to project manager Bruce Duvall.
