HeraldNet: Urban traffic hits rural roads

HeraldNet: Urban traffic hits rural roads: "More drivers are using Snohomish County's rural two-lane roads to travel between booming urban areas and state highways.
As a result, county officials want to relax some traffic standards to recognize that some rural roads through farms and flood country are becoming urbanized."

Although Three lakes Road doesn't appear to be on their list, many of the roads that I drive on are, including Machias Cutoff, Bickford Avenue, Lowell-Snohomish River road, Airport Way, 88th/92nd street SE, and Broadway. Let's face it--they are going to lower the standards so they can allow more development.

I searched the web and found some background material on the county web site. There is a lot more material there in PDF format. Do a Google search on the site for urban congestion or rural.
