Ebey Waterfront Trail
The Ebey Waterfront Trail will be extended from the current trail terminus in the Haborview neighborhood near 52st St NE and Sunnyside Blvd and will continue north along Sunnyside Blvd to 53rd St NE.  The City received $1.0M in grant funding for the project.  Construction is estimated to begin this Fall with completion by early 2019.   

Centennial Trail Connector
The City is currently working on the design of 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 $1.0M in grant funding for the project.  Construction is estimated to begin in 2019.

Recently Completed Projects

1st Street Low Impact Development Project
Construction is complete on the 1st Street LID project from State Avenue to east of Cedar Avenue. The project built bioretention facilities, or rain gardens, to treat and infiltrate stormwater runoff. Runoff currently drains to a conveyance system that discharges to Ebey Slough. The project was funded in part by the Washington State Department of Ecology. 

Citywide Safety Improvement Program
The City completed various safety improvements to the signalized intersections throughout the City including conversion to flashing yellow arrows at several key locations.  The project was funded by a grant from WSDOT's Highway Safety Improvement Program.   

Sunnyside Well Treatment facility
The City completed construction of a new water treatment facility near 71st Ave. NE and 40th St. NE.  Construction include a 6,900 square foot, two-story water treatment plant that provides for filtration of the minor levels or iron and manganese currently present within this water source; two deep water wells.  The project represents a key and vital improvement to Marysville's municipal water system allowing the city to "perfect" water rights for its own sources of drinking water and thereby become more self-reliant for years to come.   

Future City Projects

State Avenue Corridor Widening from 100th Street NE to 116th Street NE 
State Avenue between 100th St. NE and 116th St. NE represents the last remaining section of this major arterial to widen to a full 5-lane buildout.  It is also one of the most challenging sections that remain as it crosses Quil Ceda Creek just north of 100th St. NE.  The project proposes to widen State Avenue from 3-lanes to 5-lanes and 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 grant from the Transportation Improvement Board in 2016.  The project is currently under design.  

Construction of Phase 1 from 100th St NE to 104th Pl NE is estimated for 2019, assuming the City can secure funding for construction.  This will include replacing the existing culvert at Quil Ceda Creek with a short-span bridge.  

First Street Bypass
The First Street Bypass includes improvements to provide east-west connectivity from State Ave. to 47th Ave.  The project is needed in order to decrease congestion at 4th Steet and to mitigate traffic congestion through Downtown as a result of the new interchange proposed at SR529 and I-5.  First Street will be designed as an arterial, and will include bike lanes and a 12 foot shared use path on the south side.  Power and communication utilities will be undergrounded along First Street as part of this project.  Right of way acquisition and wetland impacts will be minimized as the existing roadway is widened from two lanes with shoulders, to five lanes from State to Alder.  The section of new roadway between Alder and 47th will narrow to two lanes, and will function as a limited access bypass route.

The project is scheduled to start construction in 2019, and is anticipated to be complete by end of 2020.  As of August 2018, the project design is 60% complete, with final design scheduled for completion by end of 2018.  Completion of right of way acquisition, and final approval of environmental permits must be completed prior to construction.  These tasks are scheduled for completion by early 2019.

88th Street NE Corridor Widening from State Avenue to 67th Avenue NE
The 88th St. NE corridor is primarily a two lane roadway between State Avenue and 67th Ave. NE.  While the City has constructed recent signal improvements at 55th Ave. NE and 51st Ave. NE, including the new 51st Ave. NE connection between 88th St. NE and 84th St. NE, the project proposes to widen the corridor.  The current traffic comprehensive plan recommends widening the corridor to 3-lanes.  The project will include curb, gutter and sidewalk.  Bicycle lanes will be included from 67th Ave. NE to 51st Ave. NE, both planned bicycle routes.  The project is currently in design.  

156th St. NE, 51st Ave. NE and 160th St. NE Interim Improvements  
In order to spur economic development within the Arlington-Marysville Industrial Center, the City proposes to construct interim roadway improvements to extend 156th St. NE to 51st Ave. NE, to widen 51st Ave. NE from 152nd St. NE to 160th St. NE, and construct 160th St. NE from Smokey Point Blvd. to 51st Ave. NE.  This will begin the roadway "loop" and will include necessary utility infrastructure to support the future development.  With the buildout of the 156th St. NE Interchange in the coming years, the new Industrial Center will become and economic hub and employment center for the North Snohomish County region.
83rd Ave NE and Soper Hill Rd Intersection Improvements
The City of Marysville and Lake Stevens are partnering together on the design and construction of an urban compact roundabout at this intersection.  Intersection improvements are needed in order to accommodate the future growth in the Whiskey Ridge neighborhood.  A roundabout is also planned for at the intersection of 87th Ave NE and Soper Hill Rd.
