Mukilteo strives to be a City with a complete and efficient network of safe, healthy, convenient, and enjoyable transportation options that provide equitable connectivity to pedestrians, transit users, cyclists, and motorists to and from the neighborhoods where they live, work, and play.
On March 6, 2017, the City Council adopted the final By The Way (BTW) Plan (pdf).
The BTW Plan identifies future projects that will meet the following goals:
- Projects will provide safe connection between neighborhoods, parks, commercial districts, transit stops, schools, and regional pedestrian and bicycle networks.
- Routes located within one half-mile of schools will identify projects to meet the principles and policies of Safe Routes to School.
- Project corridors will provide multi-modal facilities to promote the choice of travel mode within the community.
- Mukilteo Greenway signage and wayfinding will provide residents a sense of location and connection to better identify safe routes to move about the community.
- The public right-of-way shall incorporate a “Complete Streets” policy that simultaneously serves people and commerce.
- The transportation network shall accommodate all ages, populations, and abilities.
- Projects that enhance connectivity shall be the first priority.
- The City’s street standards shall be “Green Streets” requiring a range of low impact and environmentally friendly practices.
