As changes occur around the light rail station areas, it will be important for people to get to the stations safely and efficiently. This includes strengthening non-motorized connections. One such project is to build a pedestrian and bike crossing over I-5 at N 148th Street. 

Based on a study conducted in 2016 and 2017, a bridge crossing I-5 in the area of N 148th Street provides the shortest, most direct access to the Shoreline South/145th Station from neighborhoods west of I-5; draws the most potential users; and is the lowest cost alternative. 

What’s happening now?

Design work for the bridge began in the summer of 2019 and consists of three main parts: 

  • Bridge span over I-5: What type of bridge will be built?
  • West trail connection: How will the bridge connect to 1st Avenue NE?
  • East bridge landing: How will the bridge connect to the new transit center on the east side of I-5?

For each part of the project design, we are reviewing several options. Based on technical needs and community input, we will select a preferred alternative design for the bridge later this spring. The City is continuing to seek funding to fully fund this project. If successful, construction will begin in 2022 and be complete in 2023 before the new light rail station opens.

How to get involved and provide input

We need your feedback on each option for the bridge span over I-5, the west trail connection, and the east bridge landing. We also want your feedback as we develop the key criteria for selecting a preferred alternative. We will be hosting several events and online forums throughout the design process. We will report what we hear from you as we move through each stage. We look forward to your participation!  

Design Underway!

The City has kicked off the design phase for the 148th Street Non-Motorized Bridge, a bicycle/pedestrian bridge that will have direct connection to the future Shoreline South/145th Station (light rail). Funding for bridge design has been secured and the City has contracted with a consultant to begin design development. The project will include ramps and touchdown areas, connecting to the light rail station on the east side of Interstate 5 (I-5) and developing pedestrian / bicycle connections to 1st Avenue NE on the west side. 

Next Steps

The team will concentrate on developing preliminary design and will reach out to the public in 2020 for feedback.

The City has been successful in receiving close to $10 million this year in federal, regional, and county funding. With a total project cost currently estimated at $17 million (costs will be further refined during the design process), the City continues to actively seek funding to complete construction.


Design is expected to be completed in 2021. The right-of-way phase should conclude in 2022, with construction beginning later that year and project completion in 2023.


Sound Transit has started construction of the Lynnwood Link Extension (LLE) through Shoreline with two light rail stations, Shoreline South/145th Station and Shoreline North/185th Station, opening in 2024. In preparation for the arrival of light rail transit, the City has been pro-active in finding ways to get people to these stations safely and efficiently, including strengthening non-motorized connections.

With limited existing crossings of I-5 in Shoreline and future stations located on the east side of I-5, Council directed staff to conduct a 145th Station Access Feasibility Analysis to review options for a non-motorized bridge connecting the neighborhood to the west of the freeway to the Shoreline South/145th Station. Of the options reviewed, the bridge crossing in the vicinity of N 148th Street is estimated to cost the least, provide the shortest, most direct access to the Shoreline South/145th Station, and has the ability to draw from the most potential users.  Council approved this as the preferred option on February 27, 2017.
