As of June 2020
Preferred Alternative Selected
On June 1, 2020, City Council approved the following options, from each of the three parts of the project, as the combined preferred alternative to move forward through design and construction. These options were selected based on public input and technical needs.
West Trail Connection Preferred Option: Full Build-Out (North)
The Full Build-Out option will connect the bridge to 1st Avenue NE via a 16-foot shared path and planted buffer. The exact alignment is still being determined and the City is looking for ways to minimize impacts to trees and parking.
Bridge Preferred Option: Tied Arch BridgeThe side-by-side arches and supporting cables of the Tied Arch bridge will create space and light for people using the bridge and those traveling nearby. The bridge will be wide enough for pedestrians and bicycles and built to comply with American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The bridge will be built largely off-site, minimizing construction impacts over I-5.
Bridge Preferred Option: Tied Arch Bridge
East Bridge Landing Preferred Option: Direct Ramp
This ramp option provides direct access to the future Shoreline South/145th Station and the future Trail Along the Rail.

Shoreline is growing and changing. With the coming arrival of Sound Transit light rail, the new Shoreline South/145th Station for light rail and bus transit, and new development, residents need new ways to connect to these growing services and facilities and to an expanding pedestrian and bike network.
To meet these needs, the City of Shoreline will build a new pedestrian and bike bridge crossing over Interstate 5 (I-5) at N 148th Street. The N 148th Street Non-Motorized Bridge will improve safety for everyone and reduce travel times for people walking and biking between the east and west sides of I-5 in Shoreline.
- Bridge span over I-5: What type of bridge will be built?
- East bridge landing: How will the bridge connect to the new transit center on the east side of I-5?
- West trail connection: How will the bridge connect to 1st Avenue NE?
The project team is reviewing several options for each of these three elements. Learn more about the options being considered here. As the project moves forward, the team will select a preferred option based on technical needs and community input.
In 2016 and 2017, the City of Shoreline did a study to evaluate and recommend options for linking the communities on the west side of I-5 to the future Sound Transit Shoreline South/145th Station. City of Shoreline staff, Shoreline City Council, and consulting engineers evaluated five options. Public comment was provided at Shoreline City Council meetings.
The City estimated the location at N 148th Street would cost the least to construct, likely draw the most users, and of the routes possible, provide the shortest and most direct access to the Shoreline South/145th Station. The City also reviewed WSDOT and Sound Transit regulations in order to address safety needs around and across I-5. Shoreline City Council approved this location in February 2017.
