The Port has constructed a new beach for habitat mitigation and enhanced public access alongside the Mount Baker Terminal facility in south Everett. The beach restoration added 1,100 lineal feet of beach material on the east side of the facility, while also enhancing beach access with paths, benches, picnic tables and a parking lot. With these improvements, the beach is now accessible at all tide levels.
Furthermore, the beach restoration has become an environmental success! After an environmental review, the area was determined to be flourishing with juvenile salmon, forage fish and numerous water birds.
The beach currently isnít open for public use due to the pending property transfer.
