Arlington: Airport Boulevard work begins

City officials broke ground Monday on a new three-lane commercial road that eventually will connect 188th Street NE and 172nd Street NE., as well as serve as a collector arterial to the proposed Arlington Airport Business Park.

Phase I of the project will add an extension of 51st Avenue NE into the airport north of 172nd Street. The project includes construction of a new roadway, curbs, sidewalks, trails, low-impact drainage system and utility extensions. This will be the primary access into the business park, a light industrial and commercial center.

In 2010, the city received a grant from the Puget Sound Regional Council for $452,485. The construction contract was awarded to Reece Trucking &Excavating.
