Crossroads Project Road Construction 

Road Construction

Signs of change are everywhere in downtown Bothell. Two of the major road projects, the Crossroads Project and the Mulitway Boulevard, are well underway and steadily making progress.


Here's what's happening:

The Crossroads Project is almost ready to shift traffic to the newly aligned section of SR 522. Major portions of SR 522 will be closed starting at 9:00 PM on August 9 until 5:00 AM August 12 in order to switch traffic to the new roadway alignment. During this time, SR 522 will only have one lane open in each direction from Hall Rd to Kaysner Way. Southbound traffic on NE 180th St will be detoured to 98th Ave NE or Bothell Way NE. Business access will be available during the closures.


After the major closures, some construction impacts will continue for the next three months while the City's contractor completes improvements to the north side of SR 522. Side streets and business accesses will remain open. The project is expected to be completed in March 2014. Your continued patience and assistance with revitalizing our downtown community is greatly appreciated. Read more.

Green Light for Lake Washington Recreation in Kenmore 
Press Release by City of Kenmore 

City of Kenmore LogoAccording to the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) and the Washington State Department of Health, sediments from the City of Kenmore's shoreline along Lake Washington and near the mouth of the Sammamish River are not a health threat to swimmers or boaters. The sediments were tested for metals, dioxins, PCBs, and other chemicals of potential concern for the area.

The announcement follows recent Ecology and City of Kenmore sediment testing. Samples are from seven locations along the northern shore of Lake Washington including Log Boom Park, Kenmore Navigation Channel, Kenmore Industrial Park, Harbour Village Marina, the lower reach of the Sammamish River, the Department of Fish and Wildlife boat launch and Lake Forest Park's Lyon Creek Waterfront Park. According to Ecology and Washington Department of Health, touching or accidentally swallowing sediment from the Kenmore public access areas and limited public access areas near the Kenmore Industrial Park and Kenmore Navigation Channel do not pose health risks.
