Fire Station Replacements Phase I

Station 45

The City is starting a multi-year project to demolish and build two Fire Stations on the existing sites:  

  • Downtown Fire Station #42 is 38 years old
  • Canyon Park Fire Station #45 is 33 years old

The projects will provide safety upgrades, technical modernization, and energy efficiency accommodating current and long-term emergency fire, medical, and rescue response needs. 

The new Fire Station #45 at Canyon Park would include a Police Department satellite office to serve residents of north Bothell. 

The City has hired a Consultant to serve as the Project Manager for the project.
