Courthouse Construction Now Impacting Downtown Everett Parking

The fences could be up for 18 months.

The fences are up and there are now 23 fewer 90 minute parking spaces near Everett City Hall and the Snohomish County Courthouse.

The City of Everett will be enforcing overtime parking regulations in the area so you may want to plan on using the Snohomish County parking garage, Everpark over on Hoyt, or one of the surface lots downtown if you plan on being at city hall or the county courthouse-administration complex for an extended amount of time.


Here is a look at the layout of the construction equipment to give you an idea of what you may have to navigate in the area.

This all relates to the construction of an addition to the Snohomish County Courthouse. The entire project, including a five-story wing, additional elevators, and security and accessibility upgrades will be completed in early 2021 according to the latest update posted on the Snohomish County web page.


Here is where to enter the courthouse.

There is now a new public entrance to the courthouse on the east side of the building directly across from the administration building.

The plaza entrance on the north side is now closed.

Here are a few more tips from the folks at Snohomish County about the project.

• Please be alert to your surroundings at all times.
• Account for potential delays when traveling to the County Campus.
• Park in the Campus Garage or the Oakes and Wall surface lot.
• Pedestrians: Use crosswalks on Pacific Avenue, Wetmore Avenue (near the bus stop), and Wall
Street (at Rockefeller or Oakes) to avoid the construction zone.
• Use public transit, if possible (* = stops at Courthouse):
o Everett Transit Routes 3*, 4*, 6, 7, 17*, 18*, and 29*
o Community Transit Swift Blue Line*, 201, and 202
o Skagit Transit Route 90X
o Island Transit Route 412
