Port of Everett Commission Awards $1.78 million Mukilteo Road Contract
Public Access to Edgewater Beach Closed for Construction
Mukilteo, Wash. – On Oct. 28, the Port of Everett Commission awarded a $1.78 million contract to Strider Construction to construct an access road and install utilities on the Mukilteo Tank Farm.
The new roadway will feature a two, 11-foot lanes and a 10-foot wide shared-use pathway that will promote public access to Edgewater Beach and Mount Baker Terminal, a pier that transports aircraft parts for Boeing. The project also includes roadway and Edgewater Beach landscaping improvements together with utility work, including the installation of a new sewer main and waterline.
The road and utility construction will require the closure of the recently opened Edgewater Beach during the construction period, which is expected to begin as soon as December, and be complete by June 2015. The beach and the road should be open in time for the summer of 2015. In June 2014, the City of Mukilteo, in partnership with the Port of Everett, opened access to that portion of the Mukilteo waterfront for the first time in decades.
In addition, the City of Mukilteo is currently developing a waterfront master plan to guide redevelopment efforts along the entire Mukilteo waterfront, which will include a new multimodal ferry terminal, daylighted Japanese Gulch Creek, and new parks and recreation opportunities.
