Infrastructure & Mobility


Improving Everett's transportation and infrastructure is a key priority for the City of Everett. Current work to improve these areas include:

Average commute time
This number represents residents’ mean travel time to work. Studies indicate that long commute times are strongly affected by conditions of sprawl, as greater sprawl is associated with increased costs to the traveler. A tradeoff often exists between commute time and cost of housing. Many individuals may choose to live farther away from their place of work due to lower housing costs, while, conversely, some may opt for higher cost urban housing in order to avoid stressful commutes and lengthy travel times. Average commute time data was retrieved from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey.
