City contracts 1st Street Bypass construction; prep begins next week

1st St Bypass 529

One of the largest construction projects undertaken by the City of Marysville is getting underway. The City Council awarded a contract of nearly $13 million to Scarsella Bros., Inc., to build the 1st Street Bypass at its regular meeting Monday evening. 

The project will widen 1st Street from two to five lanes between State and Alder, then extend 1st Street as a two-lane bypass road between Alder and 47th Avenue NE. Roadway improvements will include a shared-use bicycle and pedestrian path, street lighting and traffic signal improvements. 

Starting Monday, May 20, the contractor will install fencing and erosion control elements to prepare the work area for clearing. Expect significant construction traffic on 1st Street between State and Alder and on 47th Avenue NE to support this work. Following the prep work, Scarsella Bros. will begin removing unsuitable soils and installing ground improvements to support the new roadway. 

The city expects to complete the 1st Street Bypass project by the end of 2020. Together with the state's new Interstate 5 freeway interchange at SR 529 expected to open in 2022, these projects will offer a new commuter alternative that bypasses 4th Street congestion and BNSF railroad tracks. 

"We will do our best to minimize impacts to the community," said Steve Miller, Senior Project Manager. "We appreciate your patience as the city prepares to start this important project."
