Crews will pave Bothell Way — as part of the Multiway Boulevard Project — from State Route 522 to Northeast 188th Street from 4 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.

According to a City of Bothell press release, only one lane of traffic will be available in the northbound and southbound directions. Drivers should expect significant delays throughout downtown Bothell and should take alternate routes if possible.

In addition, work south of Main Street is scheduled to be completed before 5:30 a.m. each day to maintain bus routes and access to Main Street. Access to Bothell Way Northeast at Northeast 183rd and Northeast 185th streets will also be closed for up to 60 minutes Monday and Tuesday mornings so crews can pave the intersections. Only one intersection will be closed at a time. Police will direct traffic at these intersections.

The Multiway Boulevard Project is on schedule to be completed in July. It will bring local access lanes from SR-522 to Reder Way, separated from the arterial lanes by medians. The project includes four full-size arterial traffic lanes with center turn lanes, wide (14 foot) sidewalks and other benefits, the press release states.
