Update 12/14: Check out this update with more photos and information.

The city of Edmonds will soon complete the missing link of the Interurban trail through their city. Currently, the interurban trail goes along city streets through much of the city of Edmonds and the new design will create several new trail sections to (mostly) get the trail of city streets.

MyEdmondsNews reports on the proposed improvements:

“The proposed trail alignment begins in South Edmonds at the city limits on 76th Avenue West, continues north to the PUD crossing near McAleer Way and along the older Interurban rail line, then ends at the north city limits at 228th Street Southwest. A spur trail to the west is also proposed from the PUD crossing at 76th Avenue West to Ballinger Park.”

See the map below to see where the new section of the trail will be.
