Lynnwood light rail work to close Interurban Trail section

The bike and pedestrian path will have a detour in place while construction closes it for 10 months.

LYNNWOOD — The Interurban Trail in Lynnwood will be closed between 52nd Avenue West and 44th Avenue West for 10 months starting July 12 to allow for the construction of Sound Transit’s Lynnwood City Center Station and Scriber Creek restoration work.

A detour will be available along Cedar Valley Road and 200th Street Southwest. Heading north, the detour will route to 52nd Avenue West along Cedar Valley Road, turn right onto 200th Street Southwest and reconnect with 44th Avenue West.

The regular Interurban Trail route will reopen next May 1.

Lynnwood City Center Station parking garage construction, creating about 1,665 stalls, began in October.

The parking garage is scheduled to open in spring 2023, and light rail service between the Lynnwood City Center Station the University of Washington, downtown Seattle, Sea-Tac Airport and downtown Bellevue is to begin in 2024.

“Construction is moving along … pretty rapidly, we are more than one-third complete on construction already,” Sound Transit spokesman John Gallagher said. “Last week we actually just set the final column. I think anyone who drives up and down I-5 — or just happens to be in the area — you can see the changes that are happening and they’re happening rapidly. 2024 is really not that far away and it’s good to see that level of progress.”
