Monroe-Sultan ATV routes
MONROE — ATVs may soon have the run of the road — as long as the road is 35 mph or less — through the backroads between Sultan and Monroe.
The City Council voted unanimously last week to expand ATV use areas, three months after they became street legal on Monroe roads with speed limits no higher than 35 mph.
The next stop is to the County Council. A vote should come by the end of fall. County Councilman Sam Low proposed the idea, and both Monroe and Sultan’s councils have given approval. It would permit ATVs on Old Owen Road, Ben Howard Road and Mann Road.
Sultan decided to allow ATVs in-city in 2013, and the Snohomish County Council legalized four-wheelers on unincorporated county roads near Sultan in December 2017.
