News & project updates

The project is in its 30% design phase.

The City held a Public meeting with Muriel’s Landing residents on March 2, 2017. Here are the materials we presented and the meeting summary.

About the project

North Creek Trail Section 4 is the last missing segment of the North Creek Trail within Bothell’s city limits. It will consist of a 10-foot wide shared use path along Filbert Road (SR 524). It will connect the planned Snohomish County North Creek Trail north of the SR 524 with the nearly completed North Creek Trail Section 3 in Bothell. Completion of this missing segment will result in a continous trail connecting to the Sammamish River/Burke Gilman Trail in King County and the Interurban Trail at McCollum Park in Snohomish County.
