Summer Street Paving in Everett

Map this project on the interactive project overview story map.

Street resurfacing is taking place at various locations in Everett and will continue through July. Crews will grind down and remove old pavement, install new traffic detection wires, and repave and restripe the roadway.

Drivers can expect lane closures and traffic delays during construction. Signs will be posted advising motorists of detours, street closures and parking restrictions. The city’s contractor, Granite Construction, is responsible for notifying affected homes and businesses. 

Paving is expected to be completed by the end of July but could be delayed by weather and other factors. 


The overlay project is an annual asset management project to repair and maintain street surfaces for safety and ride-ability. 

Project description

Construction of approximately 6.4 miles of hot mix asphalt on selected City streets, including grinding, utility adjustments, striping, channelization, traffic induction loops.

Speed hump removal

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.
