  3. Schedule

As part of the 2023 street resurfacing project and Everett’s Bicycle Master Plan, the City of Everett is considering building one-way buffered bike lanes along the curb of both sides of Madison between the Interurban Trail and Gateway Terrace. To build these buffered bike lanes, the City proposes removing all on-street parking on Madison Street between the Interurban Trail (at Commercial Avenue) and Gateway Terrace near Sievers-Duecy Boulevard.

The goal of the proposed project is to make it safer and more comfortable to bike on Madison, connecting bicyclists to the Interurban Trail, the upcoming Fleming Bicycle Corridor, and Sievers-Duecy Boulevard. Building buffered bike lanes would make Madison a safer, more protected bike facility, creating a multimodal transportation connection that accommodates a wide range of abilities, confidence and comfort levels of bicyclists.
