The City of Everett and the Tulalip Tribes are partnering through their Joint Water Pipeline Board to construct the Tulalip Water Pipeline Project, a 7.5-mile-long water transmission pipeline being constructed from the Everett water transmission pipelines near the US Highway 2 bridge on the west side of the Snohomish River, north to 88th Street Northeast and 27th Avenue Northeast on the Tulalip Tribes Reservation.
The pipeline will provide a long-term supply of water to Tulalip in support of tribal water supply needs, a reliable supply to Smith Island in the City of Everett and possible stream flow augmentation. The City of Everett is hosting project information on this website to inform the public about temporary traffic detours or potential delays during construction.
The final segment of the Tulalip Water Pipeline is under construction. This segment extends from the west side of East Marine View Drive just north of the I-5 ramp generally north across the BNSF Delta Yard and up Riverside Drive in the Port’s Riverside Business Park to a connection to the Snohomish River crossing near the SR 529 bridges. Two trenchless portions of the work were started in April and are nearing completion.
The construction of the trenched portions is about to begin as pipe is being delivered now. This work will impact most of the length of Riverside Drive with flaggers maintaining one-lane traffic around the active construction area. Trenching is expected to continue through the end of September; and, the project is expected to be complete in October.
