Section of Interurban Trail in Snohomish County to close Monday due to light rail project

SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. — Starting Monday, a section of the Interurban Trail in Snohomish County will be closed off due to Sound Transit’s Lynnwood Link Extension project.

The closure is expected to last until May 1, 2022.

The closure starts at 52nd Avenue West and goes all the way up to 44th Avenue West.

During the closure, crews will add a new parking garage, restore the Scriber Creek area and continue building the Lynnwood Center station, which is set to open in 2024.

Officials with Sound Transit said once the light rail is up and running, it will provide 27-minute trips to downtown Seattle.

The upcoming closure will block off a small portion of the trail, which, in total, runs 19 miles south into Pierce County and 24 miles north into Snohomish County.

Pedestrians who frequent that portion of the trail, which will be closed, are ready to take an alternate route.

“Yeah, the detour is not too bad. You go through the park-and-ride, and you go around,” a man who uses the trail told KIRO 7.

A detour is in place from 200th St SW to Cedar Valley Road to 52nd Ave W.

Signs along the trail map out the detour. You can also find the detour on the transit website.
