This project widens Sunset Drive from 2 lane to 5 lanes, including a two-way, left-turn lane; two bike lanes; sidewalks on both sides; and bus pullouts. The project is roughly 0.8 miles long and extends from Woburn Street to McLeod Road. These improvements are the second and final phase of widening within the city limits. The project will relieve congestion and provide facilities for alternative modes of transportation. Funding for the project comes from the Federal Highway Administration, Transportation Improvements Board, Washington Department of Transportation, and Bellingham Street fund. Although the Sunset Drive Reconstruction is designated as a street project, both storm and water projects are also involved. Two stormwater systems are being installed to insure proper drainage and to collect and treat runoff. Reconstruction will expose the old waterline allowing the city to replace the old main with a new more efficient line.
