Streets & Sidewalks


Local, State, and Federal funding for transportation has decreased, and the City of Bothell has reduced its transportation budgets accordingly. Meanwhile, construction costs are going up and traffic on our roadways continues to increase. Now, with existing budget constraints, Bothell faces a serious challenge to meet community expectations and preserve its assets.

The Public Works Department has carefully calculated the cost to manage Bothell’s streets and sidewalks, and will propose transportation budget increases in 2017-2018 to cover those costs. The City Council will consider staff recommendations and decide how best to fund this work.
