The City of Mountlake Terrace will celebrate the completion of the 230th Street Reconstruction Project with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, October 9 at 10:30 a.m. on 230th Street SW between 60th and 61st Avenues. Refreshments will be served immediately following the ceremony.
Completed earlier this fall, the 230th Street SW Reconstruction Project is a crucial transportation link between the western half of the city and Town Center businesses, the Recreation Pavilion, the library and police station. It is on bus routes for both Community Transit and the Edmonds School District, and is a preferred pedestrian access across I-5.
The new street provides two vehicle travel lanes, two bike lanes, on-street parking, sidewalks on both sides and drainage improvements. The improvements include sidewalk ramps, a revised street profile at 61st Avenue to improve sight distance, and wider sidewalks at bus stops.
Approximately two-thirds of the project costs were provided by an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant of $818,156 and a $245,995 grant from Washington State’s Transportation Improvement Board (TIB). The completed project creates a safe, convenient, and attractive route for motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and transit patrons.
