Recently Completed Projects

83rd Ave NE Water Main
Approximately 6,000 feet of 8-inch water main was replaced with 16-inch water main on 83rd Ave NE from north of Soper Hill Rd to north of Sunnyside School Rd.    
Sunnyside Well Treatment facility
The City completed construction of a new water treatment facility near 71st Ave. NE and 40th St. NE.  Construction include a 6,900 square foot, two-story water treatment plant that provides for filtration of the minor levels or iron and manganese currently present within this water source; two deep water wells.  The project represents a key and vital improvement to Marysville's municipal water system allowing the city to "perfect" water rights for its own sources of drinking water and thereby become more self-reliant for years to come.   

Future City Projects

State Avenue Corridor Widening from 100th Street NE to 116th Street NE 
State Avenue between 100th St. NE and 116th St. NE represents the last remaining section of this major arterial to widen to a full 5-lane buildout.  It is also one of the most challenging sections that remain as it crosses Quil Ceda Creek just north of 100th St. NE.  The project proposes to widen State Avenue from 3-lanes to 5-lanes and will include curb, gutter and sidewalk as well as street lighting to improve traffic and pedestrian safety along the corridor.  The project was awarded a grant from the Transportation Improvement Board in 2016.  The project is currently under design.  Construction is estimate for 2019, assuming the City can secure funding for construction.

First Street Bypass
The First Street Bypass will add a new 3-5 lane arterial connection on 1st Street from State Ave. to 47th Ave. NE.  The project is needed in order to mitigate traffic congestion through the Downtown as a result of the new interchange proposed at SR 529 and I-5.  Construction of the project is estimated for 2019. 

88th Street NE Corridor Widening from State Avenue to 67th Avenue NE
The 88th St. NE corridor is primarily a two lane roadway between State Avenue and 67th Ave. NE.  While the City has constructed recent signal improvements at 55th Ave. NE and 51st Ave. NE, including the new 51st Ave. NE connection between 88th St. NE and 84th St. NE, the project proposes to widen the corridor.  The current traffic comprehensive plan recommends widening the corridor to 3-lanes.  The project will include curb, gutter and sidewalk.  Bicycle lanes will be included from 67th Ave. NE to 51st Ave. NE, both planned bicycle routes.  Depending on available funding, the City plans on moving forward with design in late 2017/early 2018.  The first phase will concentrate on widening from east of State Avenue to 51st Ave NE.

156th St. NE, 51st Ave. NE and 160th St. NE Interim Improvements  
In order to spur economic development within the Arlington-Marysville Industrial Center, the City proposes to construct interim roadway improvements to extend 156th St. NE to 51st Ave. NE, to widen 51st Ave. NE from 152nd St. NE to 160th St. NE, and construct 160th St. NE from Smokey Point Blvd. to 51st Ave. NE.  This will begin the roadway "loop" and will include necessary utility infrastructure to support the future development.  With the buildout of the 156th St. NE Interchange in the coming years, the new Industrial Center will become and economic hub and employment center for the North Snohomish County region.
83rd Ave NE and Soper Hill Rd Intersection Improvements
The City of Marysville and Lake Stevens are partnering together on the design and construction of an urban compact roundabout at this intersection.  Intersection improvements are needed in order to accommodate the future growth in the Whiskey Ridge neighborhood.  A roundabout is also planned for at the intersection of 87th Ave NE and Soper Hill Rd.
