Editorial: $5,500 and a hashtag might help finish Highway 522

Snohomish County has no end of transportation frustrations— in particular for a 3-mile stretch of Highway 522 between Maltby and the Snohomish River where the four-lane highway (two lanes in each direction) narrows to one lane each way. It was enough to convince city leaders in Monroe to pony up $5,500 of the city’s own money to help make their case to state lawmakers and the public to widen the two-lane bottleneck and improve the highway’s interchange with Highway 524 at Paradise Lake Road. Highway 522 stretches 25 miles, connecting I-5 at the Green Lake neighborhood in Seattle, I-405 and the University of Washington’s Bothell campus, and U.S. 2 at Monroe.
