The City’s 2018 pavement overlay project includes paving a stretch of Federal Avenue, north of Mukilteo Boulevard from 42nd Street to 40th Street (see vicinity map). This project is in the Port Gardner neighborhood.
As part the project, construction crews have removed and will not be replacing one speed hump on Federal Avenue at approximately address 4121. Another speed hump on Federal Avenue was removed as part of an earlier pavement overlay project. After the 2018 project is completed, only one speed hump on Federal Avenue will remain (at approximately address 3905) until that section is overlaid in the future. The City will provide marked centerline and edge lines to keep the lane widths narrow so traffic continues to drive appropriately.The decision to not replace the speed hump is in keeping with City policy. It is also along a designated bike route project from the Bicycle Master Plan for which the City is seeking funding. Recent removal of speed humps on Grand Avenue near the park received overwhelmingly positive comments from area residents.
