Everett road closure

West Marine View Drive is expected to close between 13th and 18th streets from Tuesday, Sept. 17 to Thursday, Sept. 26.

Crews will be installing the new pedestrian bridge from Grand Avenue Park to the waterfront. A map of the planned closure and detours can be found on the city’s website.

According to the city, “placement of the bridge is completely dependent on Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway’s (BNSF) approval of a train-free window. BNSF makes their decisions based on the needs of their freight network, and the timing of the window is subject to change depending on the railroad’s needs.”

The bridge is expected to be lifted into place in the last week of September. It isn’t expected to open to foot traffic until 2020.
