The parade will go on!

Construction won't stop us...Bothell's annual Fourth of July Freedom Festival Parade IS happening this year!  Our 2017 theme is “United We Stand,” and the parade will take a new, temporary route via NE 183rd Street. To preserve business access, there are also some new restrictions on chair placement for the parade. But there are lots of good spots for chairs. Check out all the details, including a parade application.

Multiway Boulevard near completion

Crews are working hard to complete most of the Multiway Boulevard Project by the weekend of July 1 before the July 4 parade! Paving on the mainline is complete and crews are installing pavers on the access lanes. Drivers should expect lane closures for striping later this month. Minor work will continue until Aug. 4, the scheduled completion date. Check out tips on how to drive on the new Multiway Boulevard in this new animation video. 

Main Street Enhancement update

Thank you for your patience during construction. Despite the noise, dust and lane closures, the Main Street business district is open! Remember there’s free parking in the City Hall garage and a new temporary lot south of Main Street.
Underground utility work continues, including installation of storm drainage. Construction is scheduled to wrap up by Thanksgiving, in time for the holiday shopping season. Check out project details.

Mark your calendar now for the July 22 Main Street Block Party, a one-year commemoration of the Main Street Fire.
