Northgate Pedestrian Bridge Update – January 2020

A little update on the Northgate Pedestrian/Bike Bridge Project:

  • Construction to begin early in 2020, to end in fall of 2021
  • 1900 ft long, 16 ft. wide, 4% grade
  • East terminus will be at NE 100th & 1st NE, with a spur directly to the Northgate Light Rail stop
  • West terminus will be at a paved trail leading  to N 100th St & College Way (Meridian) N
  • Bridge will parallel the south edge of Bartonwood, just south of the gravel access road and north of the old ball field and parking lots
  • Northgate Park and Ride on 1st NE (west side of 1st only) will be closed and used for staging.  The area on west side of I-5  (Bartonwood/N Seattle College) will also be used for staging.
  • Southbound I-5 will be closed for one weekend night, and closed northbound for one other night, while pre-assembled bridge halves are erected over the freeway
  • On the west side, removed trees are to be replaced at an “at least” 2:1 ratio and with native species.
