I have lived off 116th Street SE in Silver Lake for more than 20 years. It is the only east-west road leading to the east side of the lake. My concern is that it is still a two-lane road with no sidewalks (up to 35th) and very little shoulder in some spots. It is a very busy road that leads east to Highway 9. Part of the road is within the city of Everett and other part in Snohomish County. It is impossible to walk or ride a bike from 35th to the Bothell-Everett Highway or to the lake. I have contacted Street Smarts on several occasions over the years but each time have learned there are no plans to improve this road.
