The Port of Everett is closing access to Edgewater beach to build an improved roadway.

In June of this year access to Edgewater beach at the east end of the former fuel tank farm in Mukilteo was opened. The city of Mukilteo and the Port of Everett created an access path to the beach which had been closed for years following the construction of a pier that transports parts for Boeing. The beach is in Everett but can only be reached by going through Mukilteo. You’ll have to enjoy the beach quickly as public access to Edgewater will close once again next month as a new road is constructed. There will also be utility and landscaping work done to prepare the area for future development. The Port of Everett says the new roadway will feature two, 11-foot lanes and a 10-foot wide shared-use pathway that will promote public access to Edgewater Beach and Mount Baker Terminal. The project also includes roadway and Edgewater Beach landscaping improvements together with utility work, including the installation of a new sewer main and waterline. Port of Everett officials say they hope to have access to Edgewater beach back open by next summer.
