Smokey Point Blvd Corridor Project

Project Description

To plan for growth in Arlington, the City of Arlington is designing improvements to Smokey Point Boulevard from 174th Place NE to 200th Street NE. These improvements will support future growth and help create a community corridor for small businesses and residents. We are currently in the design phase of the project and working to finalize design concepts that will improve safety, reduce congestion, and increase opportunities for access and development within the neighborhood. 

The City is nearing the final stages of design for the Smokey Point Blvd Corridor, we would like your opinion on the style of street amenities you would like to see along the corridor.  Starting today, July 14th, a survey will be open for two weeks, closing July 28th at midnight, with three design options for street amenities.   Please visit to access the survey and help with completing the design of the Smokey Point Corridor.
