Edgewater Bridge Replacement

Map this project on the interactive project overview story map.


This project will replace the current Edgewater Bridge which was built in 1946 and is at the end of its useful life. The closure of Mukilteo Boulevard is necessary to replace the bridge and will last approximately 12 months. When the bridge closes, travelers will be detoured along SR 525, SR 526 and Glenwood Avenue/Merrill Creek Parkway.  There will be no pedestrian access across the bridge during the closure.

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 West Mukilteo Boulevard.

The new bridge will have the same number of travel lanes as the current bridge, plus bicycle lanes and wider sidewalks. Community input informed the design’s choice of bridge railings, illumination and gateway elements at both ends of the bridge.

New bridge features will include:

  • Built to modern seismic safety standards
  • 12-foot travel lanes in each direction
  • 6.5-foot sidewalks on each side of the bridge
  • 5-foot bike lanes on each side between the sidewalk and the road
