The bridge will carry utilities and pedestrians from Grand Ave. Park over the railroad tracks to the Port of Everett.

Some have expressed concern that the landing on West Marine View Drive is too plain looking.

In response, Everett Public Works will hold an informational meeting on the Grand Avenue Park Bridge Project, Monday, Jan. 25, 5:30 to 7 p.m., in the Everett Station Weyerhaeuser Room. City staff and design consultants will be on hand to explain details of the project, take comments and answer questions.

Grand Avenue Park Bridge will cross over Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks and State Route 529, from Grand Avenue Park bluff to a landing point on West Marine View Drive. The bridge will provide an above-ground pipeline crossing and pedestrian access to the waterfront. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2016 and be completed in 2017.
