Main Street Enhancement
News & project updates
August 18, 2017
A one-block closure of Main St began August 14 from Bothell Way NE to 101st Ave NE. The block will reopen in mid September. Through movements for vehicles will not be allowed but local access to some driveways will be maintained. Sidewalks will remain open.
A second one-block closure between 101st and 102nd avenues is anticipated to begin in late September or early October and last about 24 calendar days.
During both closures the contractor will demolish the existing roadway before rebuilding it as part of this project.
Businesses on Main Street remain open. Sidewalks behind the fencing will remain open as long as possible, even during roadway demolition. Access for those with disabilities via back or side entrances will be in place before any sidewalk demolition in front of businesses.
Parking is available in a temporary lot between SR 522 and Main Street, as well as at City Hall (18415 101st Ave NE).
Visit our traffic page for detailed lane closure information.
Underground utility work continues through August, including storm drainage installation. The roadwork demolition is happening concurrently so that the subgrade preparation can begin.
