SvR is providing engineering, landscape architecture and permitting support to the City of Lynnwood for the preparation of PS&Es to complete two missing links of the Interurban Trail at 208th St SW and 212th St SW. The 208th St SW missing link was recently constructed per SvR’s PS&E’s and creates a safer, all ages and abilities connection for bicyclists and pedestrians. Prior to construction, cyclists and pedestrians needed to navigate arterial roads in order to reconnect with the trail at 208th.
Improvements included installing a new portion of trail within PUD right of way, enhancing crossings at two arterials and construction of an 11’-wide side-path accommodating cyclists and pedestrians in what was a 5’ sidewalk space. The construction of the side-path included a repurposed lane: narrowing vehicular travel lanes and removing parking while maintaining the existing bike lanes on 208th St SW. SvR led the team and coordinated geotechnical engineers, transportation engineers, surveyors and an archeologist.
