SMOKEY POINT — A new street between Smokey Point Boulevard and 43rd Avenue NE will be the subject of discussion between city of Arlington officials and citizens at an upcoming meeting.
Since Dec. 2 of last year, the city has initiated the preliminary design stage for the development of a new roadway. The public will be provided with information on the new 173rd Street NE on Aug. 9 at 6 p.m. in the Arlington City Council Chambers, located behind City Hall at 238 N. Olympic Ave.
"Since the meeting in December, the city has been gathering information regarding noise, traffic impacts and options for the design of this new Arlington street," said Launa Peterson, engineer permit technician for the city's Engineering Department. "We are now at a milestone point in the design process. The city is eager to reach out to the citizens and neighbors along the new alignment to discuss various planning ideas and concepts."
Peterson encouraged the public to bring their ideas and concerns up at the Aug. 9 meeting, and to call her at 360-403-3527 if they are unable to attend.
