Current Projects

2019 Pavement Preservation Program
Paving will begin mid Summer with completion by early Fall.  These projects will be funded by the Transportation Benefit District.  The City's 2019 Pavement Preservation Program will include contractor replacement of sidewalk ramps to meet ADA, pavement repair, paving and restriping at the following locations: 
      ◦  State Avenue - 80th St NE to 88th St NE
      ◦  27th Ave NE - 172nd St NE to south of 166th Pl NE 
      ◦  171st Pl NE - 27th Ave NE to Twin Lakes Ave
      ◦  169th Pl NE - 27th Ave NE to Twin Lake Ave
      ◦  Twin Lakes Ave - 171st Pl NE to south of 166th Pl NE

First Street Bypass
The First Street Bypass includes improvements to provide east-west connectivity from State Ave. to 47th Ave. The project is needed in order to decrease congestion at 4th Steet and to mitigate traffic congestion through downtown as a result of the new state freeway interchange coming at SR 529 and I-5. First Street will become an arterial and will include bike lanes and a shared-use path on the south side. Power and communication utilities will be undergrounded along First Street as part of this project. Right-of-way acquisition and wetland impacts will be minimized as the existing roadway is widened from two lanes to five lanes between State and Alder. The section of new roadway between Alder and 47th will narrow to two lanes and will function as a limited access bypass route. The project is scheduled to start construction summer 2019 and is anticipated to be complete by end of 2020. See the site plan here.   

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 beginning in late 2019.  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 summer 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 $1.0M in grant funding for the project.  Construction is estimated to begin late 2019 or early 2020 with completion by mid-2020.  

83rd Ave NE and Soper Hill Rd Intersection Improvements
The City is currently working with the City of Lake Stevens on the design and ultimate 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 is in need of improvements.  Construction is estimated to begin sometime in 2019 or early 2020.  The project is funded by the Transportation Benefit District and developer mitigation fees.

Future City Projects

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 2019.  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
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.  The project is currently in design.  

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 has advanced design of 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.
