NOTICE OF LAND DISTURBING ACTIVITY AND SEPA THRESHOLD DETERMINATION


 


(Pursuant to the provisions of Chapters 30.70.050(2) and 30.61 SCC)


 


Project Name:South Machias Road/Machias Cutoff Intersection Improvement


 


Project Number: RC 1422


 


Project Description:SnohomishCountyPublic Works (SCPW) proposes to provide roadway improvements


at the South Machias Road/Machias Cutoff intersection. The purpose of the project is to improve intersection


operations from its current stop-controlled configuration and reduce conflict between vehicles and recreational


trail users. Traffic delays have increased at the intersection with the all-way stop operation such that the


intersection operates at Level-Of-Service E (LOS E) for both the AM and PM peak-hour commute time periods.


An analysis indicated that signalization and installation of turn lanes were warranted.


 


BothSouth Machias Roadand Machias Cutoff are two-lane rural roads that intersect at a skewed “T”


configuration. The existing intersection operates as a three-legged all-way stop with a flashing beacon. A


separate crossing for the Centennial Trail lies east of the intersection.South Machias Roadintersects Machias


Cutoff at an angle of approximately 54 degrees. There are no crosswalks or pedestrian facilities at the


intersection.


 


The project would signalize and realign the intersection so that Machias Cutoff intersectsSouth Machias


Road at a new “T” configuration. With the new configuration,South Machias Roadwould have the primary


through movement at the intersection. The proposed improvements would prioritize the highest traffic volume


movements onSouth Machias Roadand would reduce delays, reduce pedestrian conflicts and improve the


overall intersection level-of-service to LOS C. In addition to new signalization, the project would construct turn


lanes at all three legs of the intersection and provide 5-foot wide shoulders. Wider 8-foot shoulders would be


provided at the intersection in proximity to the signal to facilitate pedestrian crossings. The Centennial Trail


crossing located approximately 130 feet east of the intersection would also be reconfigured and the crossing


incorporated into the signalized intersection design.


 


A 60-inch corrugated metal pipe cross culvert on Machias Cutoff immediately west of the intersection conveys


WilliamsCreekflows. This culvert would be replaced as part of the project with one that provides for enhanced


unimpeded fish passage. The project would provide stormwater runoff treatment as part of the project.


 


The proposed work would occur largely within existing roadway right-of-way, but would require acquisition


of new right-of-way to construct the turn-lane improvements and stormwater runoff treatment facilities.


Portions of the existing Centennial Trail right-of-way would also be used to construct the improvements with


the intersection’s realignment to the south, and would also require realignment of the trail in proximity to the


intersection.


 


The project would disturb an estimated 57,000 square feet (1.32 acres) within the project’s cut/fill limits to


construct the intersection improvements. Approximately 11,500 square feet of the disturbance would occur


within the existing roadway prism.


 


SCPW proposes mitigation that would restore disturbed areas on site and use of an approved mitigation bank


for unavoidable permanent wetland, stream and buffer impacts.


 


Project Location: The project site is located at the intersection ofSouth Machias Roadand Machias Cutoff


Road southeast of Lake Stevens, approximately 1.25 miles southeast of Lake Stevens, in Section 20, Township


29 North, Range 6 East, W.M. ofSnohomishCounty.


 


Type of Project: Public Works Project – Intersection Improvement


 


Completeness Date: April 5, 2017


 


Permits/Approvals Required: Land disturbing activity permit; other applicable federal, state and local permits


 


SEPA Decision: April 12, 2017


 


Project Comment Period: April 23 – May 15, 2017


 


SEPA Appeal Period: There is no opportunity for appeal at this time. Pursuant to SCC 30.61.300(10), SEPA


appeals related to a shoreline substantial development permit shall be submitted to the state shorelines


hearings board together with appeal of the underlying shoreline permit.
