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 is expected to take place in August.
