The nine-year Safe Streets & Sidewalk levy addresses your concerns by funding street maintenance and safety improvements for neighborhood streets and arterials, including resurfacing, school walk routes, sidewalks, and crosswalks.
- Improving the condition of major streets
- Constructing sidewalks and crosswalks around schools
- Asphalt patching and sidewalk repair and replacement
- Fully funding Street Operations
- Improving pavement marking, including striping
Learn why we asked you to approve the levy, how much it costs, and what it pays for.
The Streets crew works hard to extend the service life and maintain the safety, function, and appearance of Bothell’s public streets and walkways.
The Annual Arterial Overlay Program monitors pavement condition, pursues grant funding, and designs and manages the construction projects.
The program's goal is to work closely with Bothell schools to identify needs and provide safe walking routes for students.
