EVERETT, WA – A portion of the Langus Riverfront Trail on the southwest riverbank on Smith Island will be completely closed to the public for dike maintenance starting July 8. The closure is expected to last until Aug. 8.
Dikes on Smith Island keep floodwaters from the Snohomish River and Union Slough at bay, protecting Everett’s water pollution control facility and providing a recreational amenity for the public. During this project, crews will stabilize the surface of the trail, to prevent sloughing and to meet ADA requirements.
The rest of the trail will remain open as will access to Spencer Island. A map of the trail closure can be viewed on the City’s website. More information on Langus Riverfront Park and Trail is available at everettwa.gov/LangusTrail.
