NOTICE: Road Construction Projects Near/On Campus

 

There are several road construction projects starting and a big one just about done.

Main Street

If you’ve drive anywhere near downtown or have been avoiding downtown, there is good news. The city will be opening main street to through traffic in the next week or so.  West bound traffic is already open.  The street is looking great and you can imagine all the businesses are excited to have better walkability and accessibility.  The entire community is welcome to celebrate the completion of the Main Street Enhancement Project.  Please join the fun on Saturday, April 28, 12 – 3 p.m.  There will be a ribbon cutting and many activities and festivities.

Crosswalk Project

UW Bothell and Cascadia College have partnered with the City of Bothell to construct a crosswalk at the intersection of 185th and Beardslee.  The construction will happen in two phases.  The first phase is ahead of schedule and starts today. The first phase will include constructing ada access ramps on the north and south sides of Beardslee at 185th.  If you are visiting Husky Hall or Husky Village, you might expect delays in accessing 185th.  Please be careful of the crossing Beardslee and watch out for the construction workers and their equipment.  This first phase will be complete by late April.  The second phase which includes lighting and striping will occur in early fall following the repaving of Beardslee Boulevard.  

Beardslee Repaving Project

The City of Bothell will be conducting utility work and repaving on Beardslee between 185th and 110th.  This location is along the entire frontage of Husky Hall.  The work will commence in July and be substantially complete in late September.  The construction work include replacement of utilities 17 feet underground and once the utilities are replaced the entire width of Beardslee will be repaved.  As a result of the construction, Beardslee will only have one lane open eastbound.  We are working with the City and our internal team to assess the myriad issues such as access to Husky Village, access to Husky Hall, cut through traffic on campus, bus rerouting, orientation days, summer camps and more.  Watch for additional information about this project and its impacts in June.
