Background:

Since its incorporation, the City of Kenmore has completed improvements to SR 522 (Bothell Way) between 61st Avenue NE and the east city limits to increase safety, improve transit reliability, and ease congestion. Improvements included adding new traffic signals, street lighting and sidewalks, widening SR 522 for Business Access and Transit lanes, enhancing the corridor with new landscaping and medians to improve access management, replacing the Swamp Creek Bridge, undergrounding utilities, and more. The final segment, SR 522 West B (57th Avenue NE to 61st Avenue NE) will complete corridor improvements to the west City limits.  

 

Project Description:

In 2010,  design of the West B project was shelved at the 60% completion.  The City will resume design in 2019 once the secured Connecting Washington State funding become available.  Components of SR 522 West B project include widened Business Access and Transit (BAT) and vehicle travel lanes, additional eastbound-northbound left turn lane at 61st Avenue NE / SR 522 intersection, eastbound-westbound u-turn capability at intersection, street illumination, access management, retaining walls, center median, sidewalks, drainage improvements, landscaping, and utility conversion to underground.

The West B project is funded by the State’s Connecting Washington funding package.
