The City of Everett will be closing the bridge on Mukilteo Boulevard at the Everett-Mukilteo city limits for 9 months beginning in 2022. On Tuesday August 25th the City of Everett will hold an online presentation to give details, options and gather suggestions on a project that will impact thousands of drivers going between Mukilteo and Everett. Here’s more.

The Edgewater Bridge carries W Mukilteo Blvd. across Edgewater Creek at the western limits of Everett. The road is an important arterial for the Boulevard Bluffs neighborhood, and the bridge is used daily by nearby residents, transit, ferry traffic, school buses and emergency responders.

The current Edgewater Bridge was built in 1946 and is at the end of its useful life. While safe for daily use, it is functionally obsolete, structurally deficient and currently operates under load restrictions. It is also seismically vulnerable – if two of the three bridges along W Mukilteo Blvd. were lost in a major earthquake, nearby neighborhoods could be isolated.

There are three architectural concepts that the city will enhance and add further detail as the project continues to take shape. The city can select portions of each concept from each alternative and blend or add new aspects, such as a specific lighting styles. Some decisions will be based on structural regulation, overall aesthetics as a gateway into or exiting the cities of Everett and Mukilteo, practicality, maintenance and cost. that are under consideration. You can see all three concepts at this link.

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to hold an in-person open house. Instead we hope you will join us on Tuesday, Aug. 25 at 6-7 p.m. for a virtual webinar. We will share a presentation about the bridge project and then have time for live questions with the project team.
