Main Street Enhancement

Project update

April 2018

102nd Avenue NE intersection is open

Due to a weather break this week, paving work at the 102nd Avenue NE intersection was completed earlier than originally anticipated. Drivers are advised to proceed with caution though the intersection now that eastbound traffic through Main Street is coming through the intersection.

Now that the Main Street contractor has finished paving the 102nd Avenue NE approaches, traffic on all the approaches to the intersection has been restored. This will be maintained until such a time that the private building development (Mercantile) that is adjacent to the project begins their roadway restoration and frontage work. Beginning in mid-April, the private developer is anticipated to implement single lane closures along 102nd Avenue NE and on the east leg of Main Street/102nd Avenue NE intersection to pave the roadway segments in front of their property. 

For up-to-date information on lane closures and intersection impacts, visit the Main Street Traffic Alerts page.

Second block between 101st & 102nd Avenue NE

Due to the weather break this week and the subsequent reopening of both the 101st Avenue NE & 102nd Avenue NE intersections, the eastbound lane of Main Street in this block has been reopened to traffic. Expect to see traffic cones in the roadway as crews are still completing some final finish work in this block, including street furniture installation (benches, trash cans, planter boxes etc.), signage, roadway striping and small repair work. This work is anticipated to be completed the third week of April.

Sidewalk work between Bothell Way NE & 101st Avenue

Starting the week of April 2, crews will be performing some sidewalk work on the north side of Main Street between Bothell Way NE and 101st Ave NE. This will take about three weeks to complete. Pedestrians will be routed around construction work.  

Parking update

City staff remains focused on ensuring access to all businesses on Main Street remain open.  

  • On-street parking on Main Street from Bothell Way to 101st Avenue NE is open, except for limited times when nearby work is ongoing. 
  • A temporary lot between SR 522 and Main Street is open.
  • The City Hall garage at 18415 101st Ave NE is available.
  • Parallel parking stalls on the Bothell Way access lanes provide additional parking.

Why is the project delayed?

There was a delay in obtaining the metal sleeves for the bollards to cast the concrete. Roadway, curb, and sidewalk work could not begin until the bollard foundations are completed. Also, underground utility work took longer than the contractor anticipated. 

What is the City doing to keep the project moving?
The City’s goals are to keep access to businesses open and traffic moving while allowing construction to proceed as quickly as possible. We are looking at various options to keep the project moving, including allowing the contractor to work weekends. We are working with the Main Street business community and the contractor to see what options might work best.
