MUKILTEO, Wash. June 27, 2021 – The City of Mukilteo is planning significant investments for 5th Street and wants to hear from community members to help shape the project.

The City is looking at a range of improvements on 5th Street from Lincoln Avenue to the Everett city limit, which will benefit people walking, rolling, biking, driving, and using public transit in Old Town Mukilteo. With the aid of the community, the project will begin with identifying preferred options along the corridor to provide safe and comfortable solutions for people traveling along 5th Street.

“This grant-funded effort is a great opportunity to serve all users of this main entrance to Mukilteo and a vibrant neighborhood ,” said Mayor Jennifer Gregerson. “It is a key city priority to have safe places to walk and bike, and we want to hear our residents’ voices on how to best do that on 5th Street.”

This project builds off past City planning efforts and community requests for traffic calming and accessibility investments for a wide range of users along 5th Street.

This project will be evaluating a wide range of options, including a shared use path within the Old Town segment of 5th Street from Lincoln Avenue to the Japanese Gulch area, striping for bike lanes between the Japanese Gulch area to the Everett city limits and installation of crosswalks with flashing beacons. Design based on the preferred options is expected to be completed by Summer 2022.

“The purposes of this project are to support more walking and biking, improve connections to businesses, enhance and complement the character of the Old Town neighborhood, and to make sure we are protecting our water quality and managing water runoff,” said Mayor Gregerson.

Public input is important to ensure the design of the 5th Street improvements reflect the current and future needs of the community. If you are interested in sharing feedback please take the survey or submit a comment to the City Project Manager, Connie Bowers, PE at cbowers@mukilteowa.gov.
