Party-goers and other visitors to downtown have several options for parking.

Project background

The $5.8 million project (construction costs) revitalizes Main Street as a pedestrian-friendly downtown urban center, straightening the street’s curved alignment and framing the street with wide sidewalks and flexible parking areas. The project stretches two city blocks from Bothell Way to 102nd Ave NE. Modern urban design elements include wide, curbless sidewalks; space for outdoor dining, retail and gathering areas.

The Washington State Transportation Improvement Board provided a $4.7 million grant for the project.
