Crews completing “ missing link ” in the Interurban Trail

212th Street SW will be modified and the trail realigned along the north side.

LYNNWOOD — Drivers and cyclists alike will have detours while city crews complete a “missing link” in the Interurban Trail near 212th Street SW, at the border with Mountlake Terrace.

Contractor crews working for the city of Lynnwood are expected to start setting up for work this week. Once under way, work hours are expected from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. through July, with minor activity continuing into the fall.

Eastbound traffic will be detoured first, likely starting the week of April 2, followed later on by westbound traffic.

The street will be modified and the trail realigned along the north side. A new crossing is planned there near 63rd Avenue W. The project, which includes other public works construction, is expected to cost about $2.9 million.
