Red-light cameras | OPINION

  • Aug 10, 2011 at 9:57AM

Ground broken on 156th St. over-crossing

  • Aug 11, 2011 at 3:11PM

SMOKEY POINT — With a few shovels of turned earth, the goal of an I-5 over-crossing at 156th Street came one step closer to reality on Aug. 11. "By next year we should be able to traipse over it for the first time," said Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, who was joined at the official groundbreaking ceremony at 156th Street NE and Smokey Point Boulevard by members of the Marysville City Council and city staff, as well as guests such as former Marysville Mayor Dennis Kendall and representatives for U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen. Nehring recalled how the City Council had approved a construction bid of approximately $9.7 million by Renton-based Guy F. Atkinson Construction in June, as well as how Larsen had visited the planned construction site in February with city staff, including Marysville City Engineer John Cowling. By connecting Smokey Point Boulevard to Twin Lakes Avenue across I-5, Nehring hopes not only to improve public safety and emergency response times, but also to ease traffic congestion on 172nd Street NE and provide another access point to attract as many as 10,000 light industrial and manufacturing jobs in north Marysville.
