Main Street Revitalization Project

56th Avenue
Intersection

The City of Mountlake Terrace’s “Main Street” Revitalization will improve and reconstruct a degraded roadway to both current Town Center streetscape and multi-modal standards. The project is divided into two construction phases. The recently completed Phase 1 included 236th Street SW from I-5 to 56th Avenue W. Phase 2 includes improvements to 56th Avenue W from 236th Street SW to north of 230th Street SW and is currently under final design and is soon beginning right-of-way acquisition.

Phase 2 will reconstruct the existing deteriorating roadway pavement to allow two travel lanes, bike lanes, and curbside parking. Other work includes: replace curb and gutter, construct sidewalks with tree wells, LED pedestrian and street lighting, upgrade storm drainage, upgrade curb ramps to current ADA guidelines, underground all overhead utilities, and modify/upgrade traffic signals including installation of optical fiber and connection to the City of Lynnwood's Traffic Control Center. This project will result in an estimated 188 construction jobs, and support more than 1,400 new permanent jobs. The project supports development over 1,100 housing units and will improve walkability, expand use of public space, and enhance connectivity to regional growth centers and the University of Washington. The project also adds value to regional Sound Transit Link Light Rail investments.
