New Pedestrian Crossing at Alverson and W. Marine View Drive

There’s a new crosswalk to be found at Alverson Boulevard and West Marine View Drive, giving those on foot or on a bike a safer way to cross.

In case you hadn’t heard the news yet, the Mill Town Trail was presented June 2, 2018 by the Historic Everett Foundation in conjunction with the Port of Everett. Naming the popular footpath was part of honoring the City of Everett on it’s 125th birthday, and you can find it’s official path here.

Here is the full press release from the City of Everett:

EVERETT, WA – The City of Everett’s newest crosswalk at Alverson Blvd. and West Marine View Drive offers pedestrians and bicyclists a safer and easier way to access the waterfront via the Milltown Trail.

“The growing waterfront district is one of the city’s greatest assets, and the Alverson crossing is an important connection to it from north Everett,” said Ryan Sass, public works director. “This project is a continuation of our efforts to improve this connectivity and safety for our community members.”

The pedestrian crossing opened to the public this week and features a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB), an alternative to traffic signals that increases pedestrian and bicycle safety.

Coming up

Additional minor improvements will be installed later in 2019, including signs, an asphalt landing on the south side of the intersection and permanent median islands. The crosswalk is part of a larger project also coming later in the year. More information on that project can be found at everettwa.gov/pedimprovements.
