Construction impacts park and ride
MARYSVILLE Construction aimed at widening 116th Street west of I-5 began May 5 and is expected to impact parking and access at the 116th Street Park and Ride, according to Community Transit.
The work is projected to continue until the end of July.
A partnership between the Tulalip Tribes and the Washington Department of Transportation, the work underway will add a second lane to 116th Street between the freeway and Quil Ceda Boulevard.
With the project in progress, the south portion of the park and ride will be closed. Buses will continue to serve the lot, however riders only will be able to access the parking lot from the north. Because 34th Avenue NE also will be closed during the construction, those using the lot are advised by Community Transit to take Quil Ceda Boulevard to the north portion of 34th Avenue and head south to the lot.
All in all, the construction will leave about half of the 70 park and ride spots available. Posters and flyers will be distributed at the park and ride with information regarding parking during the construction.
Vanpools and carpools will have access to the northeast corner of the Tulalip Casino parking lot during as work progresses.
