Park at Bothell Landing Trail Bridge Replacement

Category Overview

Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.

Project Highlights

The City of Bothell will use this grant to replace the bridge over the Sammamish River in the Park at Bothell Landing. The bridge is aging, too steep for people using wheelchairs, and requires frequent monitoring, repairs, and closures with inconvenient detours for trail users. The City will build a wider, flatter bridge with a 12-foot-wide deck and approaches that will be accessible to bicyclists, pedestrians, and people using wheelchairs. The bridge is in the 14-acre Park at Bothell Landing and is downtown’s trailhead to the city’s regional bicycle system via the Burke-Gilman/Sammamish River Trail and the North Creek Trail. Bothell will contribute more than $1.3 million in cash and a federal grant.
