Traffic circles going in on Second Street in Marysville

The work follows complaints from residents about people driving too fast down the street.

MARYSVILLE — Work got under way Wednesday to install traffic circles on Second Street east of State Avenue.

Three traffic circles will be located along Second Street, at the intersections of Alder, Quinn and Union avenues, to help slow traffic. The new traffic circles will be similar to those now on Third Street. This project will not not include the stormwater detention facilities or corner bulb-outs as seen on Third Street.

Work follows complaints from residents about people driving too fast down the street, often as a way to avoid Fourth Street.

Meanwhile, the city continues design work for a new three- to five-lane bypass route along First Street, from State Avenue to 47th Avenue NE. Construction on that project is slated to begin in 2019. When complete, it will offer Marysville residents and travelers an alternative east-west corridor to Fourth Street.
