Capital Improvement Projects
80th Street NE Non-Motorized Improvements
The project will add and match existing sidewalks along 80th Street NE from 47th Avenue NE to 51st Avenue NE, along with a center turn lane and bike lanes from State Avenue to 51st Avenue NE. The project was awarded $270,000 from the Puget Sound Regional Council and and another $500,000 from the WSDOT Pedestrian and Bicycle Program. Construction began in spring 2022.
LID Improvements for 2nd Street
The LID Improvements for 2nd Street project involves construction of Low Impact Development improvements (LID) from Columbia Avenue to 47th Avenue along 2nd Street. The project includes bioretention areas, traffic circles, boulevard medians, bulb-outs and replacement of portions of existing cast iron water main along 2nd Street. The project also includes installation of ADA parking stalls, landscaping and revised channelization. A Washington State Department of Ecology grant, in the amount of $250,000.00, is helping to fund design. A subsequent Ecology grant is providing construction funding in the amount of $1,130,918.71. Construction on this $3.6 Million project began in the summer of 2022 and is anticipated to be complete by February of 2023. The general contractor for this project is SRV Construction, out of Bellingham.
Strawberry Field Turf
This project involves improvements to the northwest soccer field at the Strawberry Fields Athletic Complex. Improvements include converting the natural grass field to synthetic turf as well as constructing additional spectator bleacher seating with ADA access, team benches, security fencing, and drainage improvements. A playground will be constructed as part of the Park Playground Replacements project. The city received $1M from Snohomish County and $140,000 from Amazon for this project. Construction is expected to begin in March 2023 and to be completed by June 2023.

This project will also involve the replacement of several sidewalk ramps to meet ADA standards. Total estimated construction cost is $7.9 million and is funded from the City’s Transportation Benefit District (TBD) program. In addition, the city will also resurface State Ave from 1st to Grove and 116th St NE I-5 to State Ave. The city received federal funding of $895,000 for 116th St NE and $2 million for State Ave through the National Highway System (NHS) program. Construction for the projects listed above are expected to be constructed in summer of 2023.
Downtown Stormwater Treatment Facility Project – Ecology 7.6 M Grants
This project is funded through a partnership with Ecology. Awarded in March to McClure and Sons for $10.9 M, the project is under construction, and is about 40% complete. The project includes a lift station, piping and valves, treatment cells, and large screening vaults adjacent to the BNSF property. The large vaults will remove oils, trash, and sediment upstream of the treatment areas. The treatment cells will contain media that will remove finer and dissolved contaminants. The result will be a facility producing clean stormwater that also functions as a park with interesting features accessible to the public. Completion scheduled for fall 2023, the facility will treat stormwater to full Ecology standards for the downtown area.
The project will construct a traffic signal and install ADA compliant ramps at the existing all-way stop controlled intersection of Sunnyside Blvd. & 52nd St NE. This also includes restriping the existing roadways to accommodate left turn lanes and bicycle lanes from all approaches. Funding for this project includes $250,000 from the City funds including Transportation Benefit District (TBD) funds and $1,020,371 from the Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program (CMAQ). Note that the CMAQ funding includes a $484,431 construction supplement due to the increase cost of inflation and supply chain issues.
This project is one of multiple projects that will be completed within the next 2-3 years which will provide the Soper Hill Road/Sunnyside Blvd./61st St NE/1st St direct connection from SR 9 to I-5. Substantial increases in traffic volumes are expected upon Sunnyside Blvd. with the completion of the WSDOT Connecting Washington projects of SR 529 Interchange and I-5 HOV lanes (Everett to Marysville) via the completed 1st St Bypass project. The proposed project will reduce the anticipated delay and provide for greater safety and mobility for all users. Construction is currently underway by Kamins Construction, Inc. with a total construction contract of $1,179, 621. The project is estimated to be complete by fall of 2023.
Sunnyside/53rd Signal and Shared Use Path
This project will construct a traffic signal at the intersection of 61st St NE & 53rd Ave NE as well as a multi-use path along 53rd Ave NE between 64th St NE (SR 528) and 61st St NE to connect Jennings Park trails to the Ebey Waterfront Trail system. Stormwater runoff from the roadway will be treated by a bio-retention swale with an infiltration gallery along 53rd Ave NE. The project will improve traffic safety at the intersection, fill in the missing gap of sidewalk on the east side of 53rd Ave NE, construct ADA compatible facilities at the intersections and treat stormwater runoff from the roadway prior to discharging to Ebey Slough. Funding for this project includes $250,000 from the City’s Transportation Benefit District (TBD) funds, $655,000 from the Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program (CMAQ) and $320,000 from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB). Total project cost is estimated at over $1.2 million for design, right-of-way and construction. Construction is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2023.
This project will design and construct an approximately 12,000-15,000 square foot earthen track, with 10-foot-wide asphalt paths in Jennings Park. This pump track will consist of a series of rollers and banked turns (berms) that is designed to be ridden by cyclists via “pumping of the bike” instead of pedaling. While pump tracks were originally designed to be ridden by bicycles exclusively this pump track will be paved with asphalt allowing skateboards, skates, rollerblades, and even wheelchairs to use the track. Construction is expected to begin Summer 2023.
State Avenue (104th to 116th) Construction
This project serves as an extension of “Phase I” from 100th St NE to 104th Pl Ne that was completed in 2022. Like that project, this one will widen the State Avenue corridor from three lanes to five, implement “under-grounding” of existing overhead utilities, and improve safety through signal upgrades, roadway illumination, and construction of sidewalks. Another similarity to the Phase I project is the fact that this project benefits as well from a significant funding contribution by the City’s long-standing partner — the Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) — in the form of a $4 Million construction grant. The City anticipates having this project advertised for construction right after the first of the year, and that construction will be under way in spring 2023. With a total estimated cost of $9.2 Million, construction is anticipated to be complete in the fall of 2024.
Grove Street Overcrossing
The Grove Street Overcrossing Project will construct an arterial roadway overpass, replacing an at-grade railroad crossing that will span the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway mainline railway track on Grove Street from State Avenue to Cedar Avenue. This overpass will address all modes of traffic and will include three travel lanes, bicycle lanes and pedestrian sidewalks. The challenges this Project seeks to address include frequent blockages of east-west traffic with resulting network congestion, serious injuries from train-vehicle collisions, emergency response delays by police and fire services, intermodal inefficiencies, disconnected community, and noise and air pollution. Benefits will include improved public safety, transportation network efficiency, and reduced social and environmental impacts.
Both Marysville and Washington State are deeply committed to this project, with $5 million from the 2022 Move Ahead WA, $3 million from the Community Project Funding via Representative Rick Larsen’s office, and local funds allocated to the Design and Right-Of-Way process. The Project will complete PE and ROW in 2025 to begin construction in 2026.
2022 Completed City Projects
State Avenue Corridor Widening from 100th St NE to 104th Pl NE
The State Avenue corridor between 100th St. NE and 104th Pl. NE will be widened from 3-lanes to 5-lanes. Along with widening, the project proposes replace the existing culvert at Quil Ceda Creek with a short-span bridge. The project will include curb, gutter and sidewalk as well as street lighting to improve traffic and pedestrian safety along the corridor. The project was awarded a $5M grant from the Transportation Improvement Board in 2018. Construction of this segment was completed at the end of 2022.
State Avenue from 3rd to 80th (HSIP project)
This highway safety improvement project funded by FHWA, with a construction cost of $1,148,198.11, provided ADA safety improvements at six (6) intersections along State Avenue. The project was physically complete as of October 28. The improvements included installation of a new traffic signal at 80th Street, replacing one of the oldest existing signals in the city. New pedestrian buttons were installed which offer audible directions and offer tactile vibrations and LED lights for additional ADA assistance and enhanced crossing safety.
2022 Pavement Preservation Plan
The 2022 Pavement Preservation Project included resurfacing streets at 152nd ST NE (between State Avenue and the City Limits, east of the spur track), 51st AVE NE (between 152nd ST NE and the City Limits, approx. 168th), and Shoultes AVE (between 100th ST NE and 108th ST NE, south of the roundabout). In addition, the project involved the replacement of a culvert and the replacement of several sidewalk ramps to meet ADA standards. These improvements were funded by $1.89M from the Transportation Benefit District (TBD), which is from revenue collected from sales tax. Work was completed by Reece Construction Company mid-October 2022.
2022 Sidewalk Infill
The 2022 Sidewalk Infill Project involved the construction of new sidewalks at eight project sites within the downtown area, all of which filled gaps within the existing sidewalk network in order to increase safety for pedestrians and non-motorized users. In addition, the project involved constructing new and replaced sidewalk ramps to meet ADA standards as well as frontage improvements. These improvements were funded with $275,000 from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Work was completed by WSB Excavation and Utilities LLC, early fall 2022.
Cedar Avenue LID and Roadway Improvements
The LID Improvements for Cedar Avenue project constructed Low Impact Development improvements (LID) from 1st Street to 4th Street along Cedar Avenue. Council awarded the contract to SRV on July 12th, 2021 for $1,592,252.09, including management reserve of $159,225.21, for a total allocation of $1,751,477.30. A Washington State Department of Ecology grant, in the amount of $250,000.00, helped to fund design. A subsequent Ecology grant, provided construction funding in the amount of $1,188,719.29. SRV Construction, Inc. commenced construction on August 30th, 2021. The project constructed bioretention areas, permeable pavers, bulb-outs, traffic safety improvements, pedestrian lighting, improved landscaping and amenities adjacent to the Opera House, educational signage along with replacement of a portion of existing cast iron water main at 2nd and Cedar.
The project was given physical completion on July 15th, 2022 with total construction amount of $1,647,018.54.
Jennings Park Pickleball Courts
The Jennings Park Pickleball Courts Project consisted of constructing eight pickleball courts, fencing and stormwater infrastructure at Jennings Park. This project began in July 2021, and the final coat of court surfacing material was put down in March 2022, after weather delays forced the project to pause over the winter.
2021 Completed City Projects
Centennial Trail Connector
The centennial trail connector project was the extension of the Bayview Trail near 84th St NE north to connect with the Centennial Trail at the intersection of State Route 9. The City received $1.1M in grant funding for the project. Construction was completed in 2021.
2019 Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)
The City has awarded the contract for the 2019 HSIP projects to Colacurcio Brothers, Inc. to make the following improvements:
- Installation of high friction surface treatments and speed radar warning signs on Smokey Point Blvd., north of 140th St NE.

Olympic View Park, located in the Sunnyside neighborhood and near the Ebey Waterfront Trail, opened in May 2021. This new regional park with connection to the Ebey Waterfront Trail includes vehicle parking, play area, shelter, restroom and other amenities.
2020 Completed City Projects
First Street Bypass
The First Street Bypass project included improvements to provide east-west connectivity from State Ave. to 47th Ave. The project was needed in order to decrease congestion at 4th Street and to mitigate traffic congestion through downtown as a result of the new state highway interchange planned at SR 529 and I-5.
First Street is now an arterial and includes bike lanes and shared-use path on the south side. Power and communication utilities are now underground along First Street as part of this project. The roadway is widened from two lanes to five lanes between State and Alder. The section of new roadway between Alder and 47th narrows to two lanes and functions as a limited access bypass route. The project was completed and opened to traffic in October 2020.
83rd Ave NE and Soper Hill Rd Intersection Improvements
The City, in cooperation with the City of Lake Stevens, completed construction of a mini roundabout at the intersection of 83rd Ave NE and Soper Hill Rd. With significant growth in the Whiskey Ridge neighborhood of Marysville, the intersection was in need of improvements.
Cedar Field, or Rudy Wright Memorial Field, was recently renovated complete with a turf field and field lighting. The project was funded in part by the City, Recreational Conservation Office, Snohomish County and the Marysville Little League.
2020 Pavement Preservation Program
The City's 2020 Pavement Preservation Program included replacement of sidewalk ramps to meet ADA, pavement repair, paving and restriping at the following locations:
- 67th Pl NE from 67th Dr NE to 71st Ave NE (including paving the 67th DR NE and 69th DR NE culdesacs)
- 67th St NE from 71st Ave NE to 76th Dr NE (including the 72nd DR NE and 75th DR NE culdesacs
- Grove St from 67th St NE to 83rd Ave NE
- 67th Ave NE from 47th Pl NE, to 44th St NE at 83rd Ave NE (67th turns into 44th)
These projects were funded by the Transportation Benefit District.
156th St NE Overcrossing
The 156th Street NE Railroad Overcrossing project proposes to reinstate the public railroad crossing that was closed in the early 2000s with an overcrossing at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) mainline track at 156th Street NE just west of Interstate 5. Reinstating this crossing will support future development and provide much needed expanded public access to and from I-5 for north Snohomish County. A future I-5 interchange at 156th Street NE is funded under Connecting Washington ($42M, 2025-31). Once the interchange is complete, the west leg will not fully function as traffic west of I-5 will essentially be landlocked by the parallel railroad line. While the City has planned connections through the developing Lakewood Triangle, a railroad crossing at 156th Street NE will better accommodate traffic circulation and growth in the region. The crossing is supported by BNSF, WSDOT, Snohomish County and other local agencies.
The project cost for the 156th Street NE Overcrossing project that would span the BNSF Railway track is estimated at $17.7M including design, permitting, right-of-way and construction. The State authorized funding of $500,000 through Move Ahead WA to go along with $500,000 in matching City funds that will be used towards 30% design, permitting and early right-of-way efforts. The City is seeking funding for the remainder of $16.7M to fully fund the project. Design efforts for this project started in February 2021. Construction of this project will be partially funded by a federal grant and is anticipated for 2024.
88th Street NE Corridor Widening from State Avenue to 67th Avenue NE (updated March 2021)
The 88th St NE corridor widening project will widen the roadway to three lanes and provide a number of additional improvements between the cemetery near State Avenue and 67th Avenue. Some of the features will include a two-way left turn lane, shared use paths on both sides of the roadway, new roadway crossings, improvements to existing crossings, stormwater drainage improvements, landscaping, improvements to stream crossings and replacement of existing stream culverts, and upgrades to water and wastewater utility lines.
Click on the image to expand the 60% design drawing (for reference only).
The project is at 60% design and staff is in the process of obtaining federal environmental permits needed to proceed with right-of-way acquisition. Acquisition of private property is required to widen the existing roadway. The new roadway will be centered on the existing alignment to minimize property acquisition and reduce cost. Acquisition of private property is dependent on the federal permitting process. Completion of this process and the start of property acquisition is scheduled for 2023-2024.
Construction is dependent on obtaining additional funding for final design and construction.
