Truck completing slurry seal

Slurry Seal

The City of Bothell’s first slurry seal project will be taking place near Frank Love Elementary school. Slurry Seal is an economical and effective way to improve and maintain local roads. Slurry seal is a quarter-inch layer of fine gravel, asphalt, and oil that will protect the pavement from weather and refresh the surface. We anticipate that crews will begin applying slurry seal on August 10. The slurry seal work schedule provides more details about the project schedule. Affected residents received notices about parking and access restrictions during this project.

Street Sweeping


After slurry seal application, the streets will be swept:
  • The day after;
  • One week after and
  • Three weeks after.

Street parking is not available when streets are being swept.

234th Place SW Walkway

Construction was recently completed on a five-foot wide concrete school walkway connecting Meridian Ave. S with Shelton View Elementary School via 234th Pl. SW. This project was identified by the Safe School Walk Routes taskforce as a high priority and was funded through the Sidewalk & Crosswalk Program.

NE 188th St. Non-Motorized Improvements

This project is in the early design phases and is scheduled to begin construction in the Summer of 2019. It proposes a connective pedestrian route from Bothell High School to Bothell Way NE via NE 188th St. It is part of the Safe School Walk Routes  and will make it easier for students that are walking or biking to school.
