Park at Bothell Landing Pedestrian Bridge Replacement
Existing pedestrian bridge
This project replaces the iconic 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 historic arched look of the City’s iconic bridge.
Construction of the new bridge will occur in portions of the Park at Bothell Landing near the existing bridge. These areas will not be accessible to the public during bridge construction. Demolition of the existing bridge will take place between July 15 and August 31, 2020.
The project will strengthen and enhance Bothell’s network of bike and pedestrian facilities and align with the Park Master Plan.
To Date: Design on the project has been completed. Public meetings and open houses have been held.
Summer 2018: Design permits submitted.
Winter 2018: Environmental permitting issued.
November 18, 2019: Open House event at Lytle House (9929 NE 180th St, Bothell) between 5 and 7 p.m.
Construction is scheduled to begin in winter 2019.

Why replace the bridge now?
We need to replace this bridge for several reasons:
Pests are invading the timbers at the abutments
The bridge is nearing the end of its structural life
The desk members are showing signs of decay
The timber wood members are starting to divide or break into layers
The City has received the following grants for the design and construction of this project:
$1,175,000 Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) grant
$1,080,300 State Recreation and Conservation Office's Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP) trails grant
