The Interurban Trail in Lynnwood began closing today between 52nd Avenue West and 44th Avenue West.  It will return.  But in the meantime, expect detours.  Parts of the trail will close for 10 months, other parts for up to two years, see above map. The first affected area is expected to reopen by May 1, 2022.

What is the Interurban Trail?  For those unfamiliar, it is a wonderful biking, hiking, running, jogging and sometimes even horse trail.  It was a project between Snohomish County, the cities of Everett and Lynnwood, and Public Utility District No.1 of Snohomish County. There are 11.8 miles of paved surface.

This will allow much needed infrastructure construction to the area, which it is in desperate need of.  This closure will allow the completion of the light-rail connection to Lynwood and completion of the Lynnwood City Station.  During the closure, crews will continue building the Lynnwood City Center Station, the new parking garage and restore the Scriber Creek area.  The garage will open in Spring 2023, with full service of the line expected in 2024.
