Main Street Enhancement
News & project updates
October 16, 2017
Through early November, the contractor will continue working in the first block between Bothell Way and 101st Ave NE. Eastbound traffic was restored through this section in mid-September. During this period, the work includes pouring new sidewalks, placing curb and gutter, constructing planter boxes, prep work for the parking stall pavers, installing irrigation system, installing street lighting, and constructing the new intersection at 101st Ave NE.
Once work on the intersection begins, drivers should anticipate delays as traffic flow will be reduced to one-way with flagger control.
Second block closure starts in late October / early November
In late October or early November, the contractor will close the travel lanes in the second block of Main St, between 101st and 102nd Ave NE for approximately a month to construct the new bollard footings, roadway travel lanes, and sidewalks.
- The road will be closed to vehicular traffic.
- Sidewalks, crosswalks and front door accesses will remain open during this closure.
- Back parking lot entrances will not be impacted.
Parking is available in a temporary lot between SR 522 and Main Street, as well as at City Hall (18415 101st Ave NE).
