Park at Bothell Landing Pedestrian Bridge Replacement

Watch the new pedestrian bridge being lifted and set in place.

This project replaces the pedestrian bridge over the Sammamish River at the Park at Bothell Landing. The project will construct a wider timber-truss bridge with a 12-foot wide deck that meets current structural and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. 

The flatter deck and approach grades will provide a fully accessible shared-use, non-motorized path for bicyclists and pedestrians. The design effort will strive to maintain the arched look of the City’s iconic bridge. 

The project will strengthen and enhance Bothell’s network of bike and pedestrian facilities and align with the Park Master Plan.
