Bothell will close Main St. between 101st Ave. and 102nd Ave. to vehicles in downtown Bothell beginning on Friday at 3 p.m. until at least Jan 12 around 5 p.m.

The weekend closure is for safety and to minimize impacts of Main St. construction on Saturday’s Holiday Wine, Beer and Spirit Walk. The month-long closure is for construction of the Main St. Enhancement project.

The closure may be extended if it will help complete the project faster. Staff will evaluate the closure in early January and inform the public if the closure will be extended.

Crews are completely removing and replacing the roadway, sidewalks, parking stalls, lighting and landscaping as part of the Main St. Enhancement Project.

Businesses and sidewalks on Main St. remain open. Parking is available in a temporary lot between SR 522 and Main St. and in City Hall at 18415 101st Ave. NE. Parking is also available in the new access lane on Bothell Way.

The project contractor submitted a draft schedule update showing a completion date in February 2018. City staff is working with the contractor to get it done sooner.

There was a delay in obtaining the metal sleeves for the bollards to cast in the concrete, according to a press release. Roadway, curb, and sidewalk work could not begin until the bollard foundations are completed. Additionally, underground utility work took longer than the contractor anticipated.
