This, conceivably, could place the entire initial stage (one 2-lane highway)of the Cutoff in usage sometime in late 1970. Bell said that the interchange of the cutoff at the old Snohomish Highway had received some technical changes which the department believes will be an improve- ment over the previous design. The junct- ion, a major interchange, will provide to their homes because the original plan called for Valley View to overpass the Cutoff. Under the new plan, the Cutoff will overpass with a clearance of some 20 feet. This move, Bell explained, would render far less disservices to neighbor- ing property owners. The new U. S. 2 project is progressing on the schedule established by Foster. Design engineer consultants from private firms are making intensive field studies of the road corridor plan as was shown here several months ago. The field en- gineers are in constant contact with the highway department which is also eval- uating the various suggestions made at the public hearings held here on the cor- ridor. We should also tell you that Foster will shortly be leaving as this district's engineer having been promoted to a state assistant director of highways. We wish him well in his new position and would like to extend our gratitude for the services he has rendered here in this valley. ies Friday.
