house  Reconstruction of Beacham Street
     
WorldTech Engineering, LLC, a consultant working with the City of Everett, made a presentation to the Island End Industrial Park division of the Everett Chamber of Commerce about the reconstruction of Beacham Street project. The following  is a recap of the project.   
 
The city will  applyifor funding in September/October and, if approved, the work would likely begin in the spring of next year 2013 and take two full construction seasons to complete.  The work would involve a pavement design that would overhaul the foundation of the 1/4 mile stretch of Beacham Street from Broadway to the Chelsea line, not just the road surface.  This redesign would be one specifically tailored for a road with heavy truck traffic.  The project will cost about $2.8 million, which does not include the handling of any hazardous materials, and is being built to last 20 years.  The project will not be able to include any betterments, such as new water mains, etc.  Utilities would be asked to do any work on their pipes and other underground facilities during this construction process.
 
A study revealed that about 7,400 vehicles/day travel westbound on Beacham Street (three times the amount of traffic traveling eastbound) and about 45% of the traffic on this road is heavy truck traffic.  Someone mentioned a separate study conducted by Rep. Stat Smith's office that revealed that about 3,000 cabs per day travel down this road.  Another interesting factoid, the average crashes per million vehicles entering any road is .57.  On Bow Street there are 1.68 crashes per million entering vehicles and on vehicles entering Robin Street the statistic is 1.02.
 
Other than new pavement design, the project would involve/not involve:
  • Ensuring that businesses can continue to operate throughout the project (much of the work may be done after hours)
  • Reducing the severe traffic cues on Broadway for vehicles trying to make the left onto Dexter Street
  • Eliminating on-street parking on Bow Street
  • Pedestrian accommodations to connect Bow and Robin Streets: sidewalks on both sides of Robin Street
  • Improvements to driveway openings for the produce businesses close to the Chelsea line
  • Better delineation of the roadway where Behen and Beacham Streets connect, instead of the open field concept that now exists
  • Widening the corner of Robin Street to  eastbound Beacham Street to avoid trucks going onto the sidewalk or into opposing lanes
  • The Beacham Street stretch between Broadway and Bow Streets will not be widened since there is no way that this can be done given the existing buildings, etc.
  • Street lights are not included in the proposal

Some asked if the the construction on this project could being after the current construction on lower Broadway is completed, since there was a concern about emergency vehicles having adequate access to his area.  It was thought that the vast majority of the current project would be completed before this, so as not to further limit access to the area.
