New construction coming on the Interurban Trail

Bicyclists, joggers, dog-walkers, and everyone else who uses the Interurban Trail through Shoreline will soon be able to visit our neighbors to the north more easily.

The trail, which has seen vast improvements over the last few years thanks to $11.3 million in grants and Shoreline's capital improvement fund, currently ends at the King-Snohomish county line. But thanks to the folks in Montlake Terrace, a widened portion of the trail will be constructed along 76th Street SW, connecting the trail to the Edmonds border.

From there, trail users will be able to continue to the Montlake Terrace part of the trail, and from there to Lynnwood, and all the way to Everett.

The new construction is anticipated to begin in Fall of 2009, hopefully ending in time for long summer bike rides in 2010.

Do you use the trail? Do you feel it's a good use of the city's money? According to the city's website, no taxes were raised in order to refurbish the trail - was the city's grant money well-spent by improving the trail?
