Construction began in earnest last week to widen Bothell-Everett Highway from about 1,000 feet south of 228th Street SE south to 240th Street SE. The project, expected to take about one year to complete, will widen the busy north-south route to four lanes with a center turn lane, create bicycle lanes in both directions, install sidewalks and improve transit stops along the corridor. Visitors to Country Village will have improved safety entering and exiting the shopping center.
