The contractor for the Main Street Enhancement project is continuing to work through inclement weather.

Some work cannot be accomplished in the rain, such as pouring and finishing of concrete surfaces. The one-block closure of Main Street between 101st and 102nd avenues is expected to continue through February and potentially into the first week of March. The actual duration will depend on the weather.

101st intersection impacts beginning Feb. 13

Beginning Feb 13, the intersection of 101st Ave. NE. and Main Street will be restricted during reconstruction of the intersection, which will occur in two phases.

First, the eastern half of the intersection will be closed for about one week, weather permitting. Drivers should anticipate delays as north-south traffic on 101st Ave. NE. will alternate using one lane through the intersection.

Flaggers will direct traffic from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. During non-work hours, Main Street from Bothell Way NE. to the Sherman-Williams parking lot will be local access only from Bothell Way NE.

After work on the eastern half of the intersection is completed, the western half of the intersection will be closed for about one week, weather permitting. There will be no east-west access through the intersection.

North-south traffic will alternate on 101st Ave. using one lane. Main Street from Bothell Way NE. to the Sherwin-Williams parking lot will be local access only 24 hours a day with access available only from Bothell Way NE.

102nd Ave. intersection impacts beginning the week of Feb. 26

Beginning the week of Feb. 26, expect delays at the intersection of 102nd Ave. NE. and Main Street for reconstruction, which will be in two phases.

First, the western half of the intersection will be closed to reconstruct that portion of the intersection for about one week, weather permitting. North-south traffic on 102nd Ave. NE. will alternate using one lane through the intersection.

Flaggers will direct traffic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. A temporary traffic signal will direct traffic at other times.

After the work on the western half of the intersection is completed, the eastern half will be closed for about one week, weather permitting. North-south traffic on 102nd Ave. NE. will alternate using one lane through the intersection. Local access only will be available along Main Street from 104th Ave. NE. to the Wells Fargo bank driveway during this time. Main Street from 102nd Ave. NE. to west of the Wells Fargo bank driveway will be closed.
