Phase 1 of the Multiway Boulevard project was completed in 2014. The project transformed the west side of Bothell Way NE between SR 522 and Reder Way.
Phase 2 construction on the east side and remaining west side has started. When the project is complete in summer 2017, pedestrians will be able to cross back and forth easily between historic downtown on the east side of Bothell Way and the newly developing west side.
New southbound traffic lanes should be finished by late October 2016. In November, northbound traffic will shift to a temporary alignment next to the southbound lanes while the contractor works on the remaining improvements on the east side of Bothell Way NE.
Benefits shared by all
Motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit riders will share the benefits of multimodal transportation options in downtown Bothell.
