About the Project
The Harbour Reach Corridor Project (HRCP) will construct a new urban arterial connecting Beverly Park Road to Harbour Pt Blvd SW, while modifying the existing road between South Road and Blue Heron Blvd. The completed roadway will generally consist of one northbound lane and one southbound lane with buffered bicycle lanes, landscape, and sidewalks on both sides of the roadway. Roundabouts will replace the intersections at South Road and Harbour Pt Blvd SW. Due to funding constraints the previously proposed improvements between Harbour Pt Blvd SW and Harbour Pt Blvd N (North Segment) have been eliminated from the project.
Goals and Benefits
Congested State Route 525 is currently the only north-south connection from the southern City limits to SR 526. The project will add an alternate north-south route through the City, providing increased capacity for vehicles, and significantly improving emergency response times to the south portion of the City. Another major benefit of the project is the addition of a multimodal connection through the community by providing pedestrian and bicycle facilities, streetscape standards, and traffic calming methods. Local students attending nearby Schools, patrons of the Harbour Pointe Golf Club and users of the Mukilteo Speedway will experience improvements in bicycle and pedestrian safety and mobility.
No meetings scheduled at this time.
Since the Fall of 2016, the City of Mukilteo has worked in partnership with the community to build consensus on the roadway features and priorities for the Harbour Reach Corridor Project. At each major project milestone, feedback has been gathered from the City Council, community groups and the public, and incorporated into the design development process. This feedback has been invaluable in shaping the vision for the extended Harbour Reach Corridor. As the final design continues to progress, the City welcomes additional feedback on some of the specific design components and details, such as lighting, landscaping, pedestrian connectivity, and more. As always, the City looks forward to hearing your input!

In the Summer 2016, the City of Mukilteo started Phase I, Preliminary Design of the Harbour Reach Corridor Project. This effort was completed in June 2017, kicking off the Phase II, Final Design effort, which began in July 2017. Due to funding constraints the previously proposed improvements between Harbour Pt Blvd SW and Harbour Pt Blvd N (North Segment) have been eliminated from the project. Design efforts were temporarily suspended in November, 2017 and February, 2018 while significant Value Engineering efforts could be performed to explore further cost reductions. It is anticipated that final design will be completed in the Fall 2018, with the Construction phase planned to begin in the Spring, 2019.
The total project budget is $16.1M, which consists of $15.1M of State Connecting Washington Funds and $1M of City traffic mitigation impact fees. In August 2017, the City applied for an additional $2.8M in grants through the Transportation Improvement Board (TIB), but was unsuccessful in acquiring additional project funding. Therefore, the previously proposed improvements for the North Segment (Harbour Pt Blvd SW to Harbour Pt Blvd N) have been eliminated from the project. The City continues to focus its efforts on completing the final design of the South Segment and constructing the new roadway connection between Beverly Park Rd. and Harbour Pt. Blvd SW.
