Work got underway last week on the one-mile $3.4 million Lakeview Trail that will stretch from the Interurban Trail at 228th Street SW to the west end of the 236th Street SW I-5 overpass in Mountlake Terrace.

The project is funded in part by a $2.08 million from the Surface Transportation Program of the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration. The City of Mountlake Terrace is picking up the remaining cost of trail construction.

The Mountlake Terrace City Council awarded the $3.4 million construction contract to Taylor’s Excavators of Stanwood at their March 16 council meeting. Construction is expected to take approximately six months.

In order to make room for the Lakeview Trail, a number of trees are being removed along 236th Street SW just north of the Nile Golf and Country Club.
