PROJECT DESIGN REACHES 60% DESIGN MILESTONE

The Edgewater Bridge Replacement Project reached a milestone with the completion of 60% design, a significant step in refining the design of the bridge. The team is now focused on continued refining of the design and working toward the 90 and 100 percent design milestones. The project's Type, Size and Location (TS&L) report, finalized last winter, captured foundational decisions about the bridges scale, size and design.


The project team will reach out to project neighbors, stakeholders and other interested parties again in late summer. The project remains on schedule to begin construction in early 2022.

Questions about the project 

The Edgewater Bridge carries W Mukilteo Blvd. across Edgewater Creek at the western limits of Everett. The road is an important arterial for the Boulevard Bluffs neighborhood, and the bridge is used daily by nearby residents, transit, ferry traffic, school buses and emergency responders.

The project team held a webinar on August 25, 2020, to give an overview of the project and take questions. You can view maps of the general detour route  and school detour route  when the bridge will be closed during construction.

We are replacing this bridge and completing a seismic retrofit of the Maple Heights Bridge as part of our earthquake hazard mitigation efforts. 

The current bridge was built in 1946 and is at the end of its useful life. While safe for daily use, it is functionally obsolete, structurally deficient and currently operates under load restrictions. It is also seismically vulnerable – if two of the three bridges along W Mukilteo Blvd. were lost in a major earthquake, nearby neighborhoods could be isolated.  

Building a new bridge is a long-term investment in our transportation system, providing for the safety of everyone walking, driving or using a wheelchair, stroller or bike on W Mukilteo Blvd.
