Capital Improvement Projects
State Avenue Corridor Widening from 100th St NE to 104th Pl NE
The State Avenue corridor between 100th St. NE and 104th Pl. NE will be widened from 3-lanes to 5-lanes. Along with widening, the project proposes replace the existing culvert at Quil Ceda Creek with a short-span bridge. The project 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 $5M grant from the Transportation Improvement Board in 2018. Construction is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2021.
Centennial Trail Connector
The City is currently working on the design of the extension of the Bayview Trail near 84th St NE north to connect with the Centennial Trail at the intersection of State Route 9. The City received $1.1M in grant funding for the project. Construction is estimated to begin late 2020 with completion by mid-2021.
Olympic View Park
Olympic View Park, located in the Sunnyside neighborhood and near the Ebey Waterfront Trail, will start construction mid-summer 2020 and be complete by the end of the year. The project will provide a new regional park with connection to the Ebey Waterfront Trail. The Park will include vehicle parking, play area, shelter, restroom and other amenities. Construction is estimated to be completed in early 2021.
2021 Transportation Benefit District Projects
This year's Pavement Preservation projects include State Avenue from 80th St NE to Grove Street and 47th Ave NE from 76th St NE to 84th St NE.
The City also plans improvements on 8th Street from State Avenue to Ash Avenue, using TBD funds.
2020 Completed City projects
First Street Bypass
The First Street Bypass project included improvements to provide east-west connectivity from State Ave. to 47th Ave. The project was needed in order to decrease congestion at 4th Street and to mitigate traffic congestion through downtown as a result of the new state highway interchange planned at SR 529 and I-5.
First Street is now an arterial and includes bike lanes and shared-use path on the south side. Power and communication utilities are now underground along First Street as part of this project. The roadway is widened from two lanes to five lanes between State and Alder. The section of new roadway between Alder and 47th narrows to two lanes and functions as a limited access bypass route. The project was completed and opened to traffic in October 2020.
83rd Ave NE and Soper Hill Rd Intersection Improvements
The City, in cooperation with the City of Lake Stevens, completed construction of a mini roundabout at the intersection of 83rd Ave NE and Soper Hill Rd. With significant growth in the Whiskey Ridge neighborhood of Marysville, the intersection was in need of improvements.
Cedar Field, or Rudy Wright Memorial Field, was recently renovated complete with a turf field and field lighting. The project was funded in part by the City, Recreational Conservation Office, Snohomish County and the Marysville Little League.
2020 Pavement Preservation Program
The City's 2020 Pavement Preservation Program included replacement of sidewalk ramps to meet ADA, pavement repair, paving and restriping at the following locations:
- 67th Pl NE from 67th Dr NE to 71st Ave NE (including paving the 67th DR NE and 69th DR NE culdesacs)
- 67th St NE from 71st Ave NE to 76th Dr NE (including the 72nd DR NE and 75th DR NE culdesacs
- Grove St from 67th St NE to 83rd Ave NE
- 67th Ave NE from 47th Pl NE, to 44th St NE at 83rd Ave NE (67th turns into 44th)
These projects were funded by the Transportation Benefit District.
State Avenue Corridor Widening from 104th Pl 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. Construction of Phase 1 from 100th St NE to 104th Pl NE is estimated for 2020-21. Construction of the remaining corridor from 104th Pl NE to 116th St NE is contingent upon the City obtaining construction funds.
88th Street NE Corridor Widening from State Avenue to 67th Avenue NE (updated March 2021)
The 88th St NE corridor widening project will widen the roadway to three lanes and provide a number of additional improvements between the cemetery near State Avenue and 67th Avenue. Some of the features will include a two-way left turn lane, shared use paths on both sides of the roadway, new roadway crossings, improvements to existing crossings, stormwater drainage improvements, landscaping, improvements to stream crossings and replacement of existing stream culverts, and upgrades to water and wastewater utility lines.

The project is at 60% design and staff is in the process of obtaining federal environmental permits needed to proceed with right-of-way acquisition. Acquisition of private property is required to widen the existing roadway. The new roadway will be centered on the existing alignment to minimize property acquisition and reduce cost. Acquisition of private property is dependent on the federal permitting process. Completion of this process and the start of property acquisition is scheduled for 2022.
Construction is dependent on obtaining additional funding for final design and construction.
Ebey Waterfront Trail
Additional trail phases to fully connect the Ebey Waterfront trail from 53rd Ave NE and Sunnyside Blvd to downtown are currently being reviewed.
The Connecting Washington program funding package represents a significant investment in transportation projects for the State and includes several improvements within the Marysville corridor.
