Eastbound traffic resumes through construction zone
On Sept. 15, the contractor reopened one eastbound lane of Main St between Bothell Way NE and 101st Ave NE. Once traffic shifts to the new roadway, crews will demolish the asphalt strip that maintains access to driveways for businesses on this block. The eastbound-only traffic restriction for this block will remain for the duration of the project.
Second block closure starts mid October
Starting in mid October, the contractor will close both travel lanes in the second block of Main St, between 101st and 102nd Ave NE through mid November.
- 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
On Sept. 5, the contractor began placing steel reinforcement and installing formwork in preparation for pouring the roadway panels in the first block.
Parking is available in a temporary lot between SR 522 and Main Street, as well as at City Hall (18415 101st Ave NE).
