84th Street (Getchell Hill Road) Proposed Roadway Modifications




The City of Marysville Public Works Engineering Division held a neighborhood meeting on June 17 regarding the potential modification of a yet-to-be-determined section of 84th Street NE (Getchell Hill Road) in the eastside Marysville foothills near Cedarcrest Golf Course. Ingraham Boulevard/88th Street was planned and built to become a primary east-west arterial between SR 9 and I-5 with the intention of 84th between Ingraham and 67th Avenue being downgraded from an arterial to a local access street. However, traffic volumes on 84th remain higher than desired for a local access street classification. Steep grades, difficult winter access, a degraded roadway surface and reduced usage typify 84th in its current state.

The meeting featured an informative Powerpoint presentation that includes aerial maps and closure scenarios. The goals of 84th roadway modifications are:

• Decrease/eliminate eastbound and westbound cut-through traffic on 84th Street NE.
• Maintain local access to/from Getchell Hill.
• Reduce traffic volumes on 84th Street NE to reduce roadway wear.
• Maintain full pedestrian access regardless of proposal.
• Maintain emergency services including access for Police and Fire.

The City of Marysville would like to invite neighbors’ ideas and insights to help determine the best option for meeting these goals, for the benefit of nearby neighborhoods and local commuters.
