The City of Everett Public Works Department is in the design phase of the Grand Avenue Park Bridge. This bridge will span across the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad tracks and West Marine View Drive, from 16th Street at the north end of Grand Avenue Park, to the west side of West Marine View Drive.
The purpose of the bridge is twofold. First, the bridge will carry pipelines across the steep slope, railroad tracks and West Marine View Drive. This is necessary to replace deteriorated underground pipelines. Second, and equally important, the bridge will provide pedestrian access to the waterfront.
Between Feb. 28 and March 6, 2015, consultants for the City of Everett will be surveying and conducting geotechnical borings for the planned bridge and pipeline replacements. In addition, there will be a series of shallow borings performed in the northern section of Grand Avenue Park to support a cultural/archaeological resources evaluation for the project. During work hours, there will be noise from the borings. There may also be temporary traffic disruptions. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Design of this project will continue through 2015 with construction tentatively scheduled for 2016. Additional mailings will be sent to neighbors to advise them of the status.
