Capital Improvement Projects
Current ProjectsSunnyside Well Treatment facility
The City is currently constructing a new water treatment facility near 71st Ave. NE and 40th St. NE. This project calls for construction of a 6,900 square foot, two-story water treatment plant that will provide 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. The project is estimated to be completed by September 2017.
1st Street Low Impact Development Project
Construction is estimated to begin in September for the 1st Street LID project from State Avenue to east of Cedar Avenue. The project will construct new bioretention facilities, or rain gardens, to treat and infiltrate stormwater runoff. Runoff currently drains to a conveyance system that discharges to Ebey Slough. Completion of the project is expected late 2017. The project is funded in part by the Washington State Department of Ecology. View a before and after figure here.
83rd Ave NE Water Main
Approximately 6,000 feet of 8” water main will be replaced with 16” water main on 83rd Ave NE from north of Soper Hill Rd to north of Sunnyside School Rd. Construction is estimated to begin in September and be completed before the end of 2017.
Ebey Waterfront Trail
The City recently constructed a portion of the Ebey Waterfront Trail. The City anticipates construction of the segment under the SR529 (Ebey Slough) bridge before the end of summer 2017.
2017 Transportation Benefit District ProjectsThe following projects are funded in wholly or in part by the Transportation Benefit District:
Marshall Elementary Safe Routes to School
The project will include new sidewalks to and from Marshall Elementary on 116th St NE. The project is funded in part by the Transportation Benefit District and a WSDOT Safe Routes to School grant. The project is currently under construction with completion by the end of August/early September.
2017 Pavement Preservation Program
The City's contractor, CADMAN, started work on the 2017 Pavement Preservation at the end of July. The work is estimated to be complete by the end of October. The work includes replacement of sidewalk ramps to meet ADA, pavement repair, paving and restriping at the following locations:
◦ 67th Ave. NE - SR 528 to 44th St. NE
◦ 51st Ave. NE - North of BNSF spur track to 152nd St. N
◦ 71st Ave NE - North of 40th St NE to 44th St NE
◦ 92nd St NE - East of State Avenue to 45th Dr NE
Recently Completed Projects3rd Street Low Impact Development and Roadway Improvement Project
Construction is complete on 3rd St. between State Avenue and 47th Ave. NE. The project constructed new bioretention facilities, or rain gardens, to treat and infiltrate stormwater runoff. Runoff currently drains to a conveyance system that discharges to Ebey Slough. The project also included several improvements to improve traffic and pedestrian safety within Downtown, such as curb extensions and traffic circles at intersections, medians and marked crosswalks. The City is also replaced an aging water main as part of the project. The project was funded in part by the Washington State Department of Ecology. View a before and after figure here.
SR 528 HAWK Pedestrian Signal
The new HAWK Pedestrian Crosswalk Signal on SR 528 located midblock between Alder Ave and Quinn Ave is now complete. High-Intensity Activated crosswalk (HAWK) beacons are activated by pedestrians and used to stop traffic to enable safer crossing. The signal will facilitate travel of pedestrians between downtown Marysville, Totem Middle School, Community Transit bus stops and many City/Community festivals and events that occur throughout the year. More information on how a HAWK Signal works, including a helpful animation, can be found here.
Grove Street Sewer Replacement and Overlay
The City recently replaced aging sewer pipe and resurface Grove Street between State Avenue and 47th Ave NE. The street overlay was funded in part by the Transportation Benefit District.
Grove Street Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements
The City recently installed new sidewalks and bicycle lanes on Grove Street from Cedar Avenue to State Avenue. The project was funded in part by the Transportation Benefit District, a grant from the WSDOT Pedestrian and Bicycle Program, and a grant from the Transportation Improvement Board
Sunnyside Elementary Safe Routes to School Project
The City recently installed new sidewalks on Sunnyside Boulevard near the entrance of Sunnyside Elementary School. The project was funded in part by the Transportation Benefit District and grant from the WSDOT Safe Routes to School Program.
State Avenue Corridor Widening from 100th Street NE to 116th Street NE
Future City Projects
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.
23rd Avenue NE and 169th Street NE Connector
The Lakewood neighborhood, located west of Interstate 5, is currently experiencing tremendous growth. Access to the Lakewood Crossing commercial center, which includes retailers Costco, Target, Best Buy, among others, has limited ingress/egress via the signalized intersection at 172nd St. NE and 27th Ave. NE. With the new "Marketplace" development, a roundabout at 23rd Ave. NE was constructed. The 23rd and 169th connector project will provide an alternative access point starting at the south leg of the new roundabout at 23rd and 172nd and will connect to 169th and 27th.
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.
