Description
The bridge will carry storm drainage and sewer pipelines across a steep slope, BNSF railroad tracks and West Marine View Drive. Deteriorated underground pipelines on the slope will be replaced. The bridge will also provide pedestrian access from Grand Avenue Park to the waterfront.

It is necessary to replace deteriorated underground pipelines on landslide-prone slopes. Placing the new pipelines on a utility bridge will make them more accessible for inspection and maintenance. There will be space on the bridge for a future water main crossing.

The project also includes replacements of outfalls and a lift station force main along the waterfront from the bridge up to 14th Street.

Project Area

The Grand Avenue Park Bridge will cross from the Grand Avenue Park bluff, near 16th Street, over Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad right-of-way, and State Route 529 with a landing point on Port of Everett property.
