Projects added to 6-year transportation plan | City brief

Jun 11, 2014

Two amendments have been made to Mukilteo’s six-year list of transportation improvement projects.

The projects expanded or added to the Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program for 2015-2021 are:

• Pavement Preservation Program – This program involves the annual seal coating, overlay and reconstruction of various streets. Planned improvements are now expanded to include the laying of an alternative to chip seal on 5th Street and Harbour Pointe Boulevard. The estimated cost for this project is $2.5 million over six years.

• SR-525 Bridge Replacement – This project involves the construction of a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the railroad tracks from 1st and 2nd streets and allowing access to multimodal stations on the waterfront. It is estimated to cost $1 million.

The city’s Transportation Committee met on May 21 to discuss adding or removing projects from the six-year list, which is a part of the city’s Comprehensive Plan. The committee recommended the City Council add/expand the two projects.

The council voted 5-1 on June 2 to amend the six-year list as recommended.

As part of the Transportation Improvement Program, these projects now qualify for state and federal funding. The council can amend the list at any time.

There are 15 projects on the list right now, two of which are grant funded.
