Snohomish County Celebrating Completion of Phase I of North Creek Trail with Ribbon Cutting Event


Event to take place at 10:30 a.m. on September 22 in the 19700 block of 4th Dr SE


EVERETT, Wash., September 14, 2022 – With an eye towards improving active transportation and quality of life for residents, Snohomish County Public Works has completed the North Creek Trail – Phase I project. Crews constructed the 12-foot-wide paved path between State Route 524 and 183rd St SE, west of Bothell-Everett Highway. The 1.22-mile path also consists of boardwalks, new parking areas, and surface water facility improvements. The public is invited to celebrate this milestone with a ribbon cutting celebration on September 22, 2022.

Construction for Phase I was funded through a $1 million grant from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO), a $1.64 million grant from Surface Transportation Program (STP) and the Snohomish County Road Fund. Preconstruction work was partly funded through $1.5 million in Brightwater mitigation funds from King County. 

This new trail section, along with the upcoming phases II and III, will connect to the City of Bothell’s portion of the North Creek Trail and become part of a coordinated regional system. The North Creek Trail will eventually connect to the Sammamish River/Burke-Gilman Trails to the south in King County and with the Snohomish County Regional Interurban Trail near the I-5/SR 96 interchange, to the north.
