Shoreline Interurban Trail Shoreline, Washington

The Interurban Trail follows its namesake trolley route from downtown Seattle to northern residential and rural communities in Shoreline and Snohomish County. Instead of rail cars packed with 20th century commuters, the trail is travelled by bicyclists, pedestrians, and equestrians seeking to enjoy the Puget Sound region’s natural beauty and evolving landscape.

A Trail Designed for Community Connectivity

Connectivity and community define the trail and its creation. In design development for the 24-mile corridor the Shoreline community was engaged in an extensive outreach program, while coordinating and meeting the needs of each of the route’s affected agencies and jurisdictions. Features include view lookouts, informational kiosks, gateway elements, and trolley-related wayfinding and mile-marker signage. Otak developed the preliminary design as well as construction and management for the trail’s three-mile north, south, and south-central sections in Shoreline.
