Project Overview: ES-0489
Construction of a new 3,200 foot (.6 mile) east-west arterial, Mahogany Avenue, between Pacific Highway and Northwest Drive. Mahogany will add much-needed multimodal arterial access to land that has been zoned for commercial and industrial development since West Bakerview was constructed in the mid-1990's. The arterial will include bike lanes, curbs, gutters, sidewalks and street lighting.
The new Mahogany-Arctic arterial streets will provide direct access to major new economic development projects. The construction of the arterial will provide better traffic and freight circulation and access, will take pressure off of West Bakerview Road as the only east-west corridor, and will complete the sidewalk, bicycle lane and arterial street network in this part of Bellingham.
This project will be constructing a new roadway through an undeveloped right-of-way.
Update: August 2017
Accomplishments: Plans and specs ready to go to WSDOT. Rights-of-way approved by local WSDOT, still need Olympia to sign off.
Next Milestones: Receive approval to bid.
