The purpose of this project is to provide a shared-use path along US 2 adjacent to the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. The sidewalk that currently ends at Cascade View Drive would be extended west approximately 1,200 feet to 179th Avenue SE. Extensive negotiations are anticipated with Snohomish County Fairgrounds whose facilities currently occupy the area needed for the path, as well as WSDOT – the actual owner of the land.
City Staff successfully applied for two federal grants to help fund this project. The first grant amount is $112,710 for design efforts. The second grant amount is $432,500 for the construction phase. The total project cost is estimated to be $630,250.
A Notice to Consultants for Civil Design and Environmental Services will be published in the Daily Journal of Commerce and The Everett Herald on November 18th and 25th. Proposals are due by December 4th, 2020. Refer to the Advertisement for more information.
WSDOT has obligated the design funds to the City. In the upcoming months, engineering staff will be soliciting for professional design services to assist with this project.
