In April 2010, the City of Bothell kicked-off the Downtown Revitalization plan with the commencement of a $150 million investment in public infrastructure improvements, including two major roadway improvements on SR 522. These roadway changes will create new city-owned parcels which the city will offer for sale to be redeveloped with a focus on mixed-use retail.
The outcome of the city’s investment and work with private developers is a pedestrian-focused, mixed-use downtown environment with new retail, housing, office and entertainment destinations.

SR 522 Crossroads Realignment
Artist's rendering of the intersection of SR 522 and Bothell Way NE. The Park at Bothell Landing is depicted on the left of the image.
Through traffic lanes are flanked by side access lanes set behind 8 foot wide, tree-lined medians. Generous 15-foot sidewalks create a promenade with room for seating, trees, bike racks and sidewalk cafes.
Main Street Enhancement
Main Street Enhancement will reconstruct the entire streetscape from storefront to storefront - approximately 60 feet in total width and will create a "festival zone," closed for street fairs in the summer.
Main Street Extension
Main Street Extension brings the enhanced streetscape across Bothell Way NE to connect to the library.
185th Connector + 1⁄2 Acre Park
A new curved street segment that enhances east-west traffic circulation and serves as a new transit route, the connector includes a new park adjacent to Pop Keeney Stadium.
City Hall + City Center
Anticipated LEED Gold development featuring City Hall, a plaza for community gatherings and events, a parking facility and additional mixed-use buildings.
