Shoreline ‘Trail Along the Rail’ Feasibility Study Underway

Sound Access for All logoThe City of Shoreline is studying a proposal to build a multi-use trail along the future Sound Transit light rail line. Similar to the Interurban Trail paralleling Aurora Avenue along the east side of I-5, the trail would run from N 145th Street to NE 195th Street. Construction funding has not yet been identified.

 

This is an exciting proposal for the people of Shoreline and the region. The trail would enhance pedestrian and cyclist access to the planned 145th Street and 185th street light rail stations, as well as the existing NE 195th Street pedestrian bridge over I-5. The trail would also connect to nearby streets, parks, open spaces, and no less than six schools located along the corridor. Long term, the Trail Along the Rail could serve as Shoreline’s segment of a potential regional multi-use trail that could ultimately connect cities along the Lynnwood Link alignment from Seattle all the way to Everett.

 

As part of Feet First’s Sound Access for All program, we will help with this feasibility study through participation in an advisory committee the city has formed to help guide their work.

 

The city needs your feedback to develop the preferred trail alignment plan. Please come to the public meeting on Wednesday, March 15 and provide your input:
