PROJECT DESIGN REACHES MILESTONE WITH RELEASE OF TS&L REPORT 

The Edgewater Bridge Replacement Project reached a milestone this winter when the project team finalized the project's Type, Size and Location (TS&L) report. This report captures foundational decisions about the bridge's scale, size and design. Now the team can focus on refining design and working toward the 30 and 60 percent design milestones. 


The project team will reach out to project neighbors, stakeholders and other interested parties again this spring or summer when the project design reaches 60 percent design. The project remains on schedule to begin construction in early 2022.

Questions about the project 

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 project team held a webinar on August 25, 2020, to give an overview of the project and take questions. You can view maps of the general detour route  and school detour route  when the bridge will be closed during construction.

We are replacing this bridge and the Maple Heights Bridge as part of our earthquake hazard mitigation efforts. 

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.  

Building a new bridge is a long-term investment in our transportation system, providing for the safety of everyone walking, driving or using a wheelchair, stroller or bike on W Mukilteo Blvd.
