Following up on the successful investments made in the transportation package from a year ago, Sen. Steve Hobbs announced numerous infrastructure improvements coming to Snohomish County and surrounding areas.

“The transportation budget is definitely a winner for Snohomish County,” said Hobbs, the Senate Democrats’ lead transportation budget negotiator. “These investments are fantastic news for our economy, job creation and public safety.”

Included in the supplemental transportation budget passed on Tuesday night are:

• Funding for a study that will put Snohomish County on the path toward a replacement of the trestle at the U.S. 2 trestle covering SR 204 and 20th St.
• Consolidation of I-5 peak hour use lanes and I-5/SR 529 projects into one project. This will save $2.53 million.
• Widening and interchange improvements for SR 522 project at Paradise Rd.
• Alleviate a chokepoint for a portion of southbound I-5 Lynnwood between the Lynnwood Transit Center and Mountlake Terrace Freeway Station.
• A study to help alleviate traffic congestion on SR 522 and SR 104.
