ARLINGTON – A traffic study on Smokey Point Boulevard is prompting changes to traffic-control devices and speed limits.

In March, city crews will install signs reducing the speed limit from 40 mph to 35 mph for the road from 164th Street NE to the 200th Street NE bridge crossing.

Also in March, the intersection of 188th and Smokey Point Boulevard will become an all-way stop. In addition to painted stop bars, city staff will be installing new stop signs that will include solar-powered flashing beacons to draw drivers’ attention to the new device.

Meanwhile, Snohomish County PUD has installed new, higher-wattage light bulbs at 188th Street NE and Smokey Point Boulevard that should help visibility in the intersection.
