SR 522 Improvements (61st to 65th Avenues)
Since its incorporation, the City of Kenmore has completed several improvements to SR 522 (Bothell Way) between 65th Ave NE and the east city limits to increase safety, improve transit reliability, and ease congestion. Improvements included adding new traffic signals, street lighting and sidewalks, widening SR 522 for Business Access and Transit lanes, enhancing the corridor with new landscaping and medians to improve access management, replacing the Swamp Creek Bridge, undergrounding utilities, and more.
Some of the planned SR522 West Segment A improvements include:
The SR 522 West Segment A is fully funded.
The final segment (SR 522 West Segment B) from west city limits to 61st Avenue NE recently received a $12M in State funds as part of the State Transportation Bill, which will complete SR 522 improvements in Kenmore (Page 16 of funded projects link): http://leap.leg.wa.gov/leap/Budget/Detail/2015/cTLEAPDoc2015NL-1_0629.pdf. The State funding is programmed in $4M increments over three State biennium budgets (2017-19, 2019-21, 2021-23). The City continues to discuss options with the State to accelerate the timing of funds. With the current funding program, the final West B segment would be completed in 2023.
