Completed Downtown Projects

Wayne Curve

Wayne Curve: The western gateway to Bothell along SR 522 broke ground in 2010 was completed in 2012, improving traffic flow and transit routes.

Multiway Boulevard

Multiway Boulevard Phase 1: The first phase of the Multiway Boulevard transformed the look and function of Bothell Way from the new section of SR 522 north to Reder Way.

Multiway Boulevard Phases 2 and 3: Multiway Boulevard uses medians to separate through traffic lanes from local access traffic lanes. Its design balances competing needs for roadway capacity, local access, street parking, urban density, and pedestrian comfort.

When both sides of a street are designed this way, it is a multiway boulevard. Phases 2 and 3 of this project were completed in October 2016.

Horse Creek

The existing Horse Creek pipe was replaced with a hybrid open-channel/culvert system along 98th Ave NE. The system is designed to carry water flows exceeding the 100 year storm event and meet the fish passage criteria established by the State Department of Fish and Wildlife. The project begins at NE 188th St, north of Pop Keeney Field, and extends along 98th Ave NE to the Sammamish River. The stream is within an open channel south of the realigned SR 522. The project started in July 2014 and was completed in October 2016.

City Hall

The new building replaced the old City Hall and provides a cornerstone for the future City Center. It replaces an increasingly costly and physically inadequate City Hall built in 1938, when Bothell's population was 800.

Bothell's new City Hall opened in October 2015, featuring a Town Hall, meeting rooms, and a 254-stall parking garage. Located in the heart of downtown, the multi-use campus is a key element of the city's downtown revitalization plan.

The building opened on time and the construction project was under the $46.7 million budget.

City Hall

The new city Hall brings many benefits, including:

  • It consolidates staff and functions from six buildings down to one in order to improve customer service.
  • The new building offers services to the public on the first floor, with additional staff housed on three upper floors.
  • The building totals 53,350 feet above grade with 82,000 feet below grade, including a three-level underground parking garage with dedicated parking stalls for public use during the evening and on weekends.

Main Street Enhancement

The entire streetscape of Main Street from building-front to building-front – approximately 60 feet in total width – included the following special elements and features:

  • Wide pedestrian-friendly sidewalks
  • Gathering areas/public spaces
  • Street character and business visibility
  • High-visibility crosswalks
  • Traffic calming measures
  • Flexible use zones

Replacing and updating downtown amenities and urban elements, such as street lighting, landscaping, benches, trash receptacles, wayfinding signage, and bicycle racks brighten and bolster the economic health of this unique and historic commerce district. This project was completed in April 2018.
