Main Street Enhancement Project construction and background

Construction will begin in April. The City of Bothell is offering the contractor an incentive to complete the project before Thanksgiving.

The total project cost is $7 million. The Washington State Transportation Improvement Board approved a $4.7 million grant last fall, allowing construction on Phase I of the project to move forward.

Improvements will include:

• Gathering areas/public spaces
• Wide pedestrian-friendly sidewalks
• Maintaining the street character
• Promoting business visibility
• High-visibility crosswalks
• Traffic calming measures
• Flexible use zones (parking in the rainy season, with options for outdoor gathering spaces during nicer weather)

The Main Street Enhancement project, part of the downtown revitalization plan, is one of the City Council’s 12 top priority goals for 2017-2018.
