The Edgewater Bridge Replacement Project will begin construction in spring 2023 after the City of Everett revised the project’s schedule. Construction on the project was originally planned to begin in June of 2022. This new timeline will allow the project to complete the environmental review process, which has taken longer than expected, and will help to mitigate supply chain issues regarding material availability.

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’s design is complete, and the City expects to advertise for bids in the fourth quarter of 2022. The project’s design team incorporated community input into the bridge’s railings, light poles, and gateway design elements. See the Design & Aesthetics section below for bridge renderings.

We are replacing this bridge and have completed a seismic retrofit of 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.
