Interurban Trail Improvements

Interurban Trail at the Transit Center

The Interurban Trail is a 24-mile, regional, non-motorized trail. It stretches from Shoreline to Everett. This route was once used by electric interurban rail cars. Lynnwood's part of the Interurban Trail is 3.8-miles long. From the south at 212th St SW to the north end of the Alderwood shopping mall at the intersection of Ash Way and Maple. The Trail connects to the Lynnwood Transit Center and future Sound Transit City Center light rail station. This creates an important multimodal connection, potentially serving as a regional transit hub.

With the completion of the last major missing-link of the corridor that further separates the trail from motorized traffic, we are shifting our focus to improving the utility and aesthetic of the Trail. Through landscaping and amenities, a safe and comfortable environment will be created to better serve the community and economic health.

A planning study for improvements was launched in 2015 with a new Interurban Trail Master Plan for Improvements adopted in 2018. The master plan identifies the character of the Trail by segment and offers opportunities for improvements including the construction of a plaza at the 40th Ave W trailhead. The new trailhead plaza project was competed in 2019.
