Park at Bothell Landing Pedestrian Bridge Replacement

Project Update

The new bridge is officially open!

About the Project

This project replaced the pedestrian bridge over the Sammamish River at the Park at Bothell Landing. The project constructed a wider timber-truss bridge with a 12-foot wide deck that meets current structural and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. 

The flatter deck and approach grades provide a fully accessible shared-use, non-motorized path for bicyclists and pedestrians. The design maintains the arched look of the City’s iconic bridge. 

The project strengthens and enhances Bothell’s network of bike and pedestrian facilities and align with the Park Master Plan.
