We built a pedestrian bridge and connecting trail for the city of Lynnwood at 44th Avenue West near I-5. The new bridge and trail will help improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists and will provide easy access to the Lynnwood Transit Center.
Previously, pedestrians and bicyclists had to leave the Interurban trail at the Lynnwood Transit Center and continue on the 44th Avenue West sidewalk to the busy 44th Ave West/200th St SW intersection. They then crossed 44th Ave West and continued along 200th Street SW to reconnect with the existing trail.
The new pedestrian bridge allows people on foot or bike to bypass busy streets altogether. The western end of the bridge connects to the existing trail near the Lynnwood Transit Center. On the eastern end of the bridge, we built a new 1500-foot section of trail to connect the bridge to the existing Interurban Trail at 40th Avenue West and complete the “missing link” in Lynnwood’s portion of the Interurban Trail.
The new pedestrian bridge will make it safer and easier for bicyclists and pedestrians to use the trail and access the transit center.
