Edgewater Bridge Replacement

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 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.  

We are focusing on this bridge and the Maple Heights Bridge as part of our earthquake hazard mitigation efforts. Building a new bridge is a long-term investment in our transportation system, providing for the safety of everyone walking, using a wheelchair, pushing a stroller, biking and driving on W. Mukilteo Blvd.
