Main Street Enhancement

Project update

December 2017 - January 2018

The block between 101st Ave NE and 102nd Ave NE will be closed to vehicular traffic from December 11 at least through January 12 for construction. The closure may be extended if it will help complete the project faster. Staff will evaluate the closure in early January and inform the public if the closure will be extended.

The contractor is installing new concrete travel lanes, sidewalks, parking/flexible use spaces, street lighting and landscaping

The first block between Bothell Way NE and 101st Ave NE continues to be open to two-way traffic.

When will the project be complete?

The contractor submitted a draft schedule update showing a completion date in February 2018. Staff is working with the contractor to get it done sooner. The most significant impact is on the second block. 

Why is the project delayed?

There was a delay in obtaining the metal sleeves for the bollards to cast in the concrete. Roadway, curb, and sidewalk work could not begin until the bollard foundations are completed. Also, underground utility work also took longer than the contractor anticipated. 

What is the City doing to keep the project moving?

The City’s goals are to keep access to businesses open and traffic moving while allowing construction to proceed as quickly as possible. We are looking at various options to keep the project moving, including allowing the contractor to work weekends. We are working with the Main Street business community and the contractor to see what options might work best.
