Interurban Trail link through Edmonds nearly complete

The rest stop at 76th and McAleer Way includes a bench and signage.

Work is in progress on the trail connecting 76th Avenue West to 74th Avenue West.

The City of Edmonds says work on the Interurban bike and pedestrian trail connection through Edmonds’ Lake Ballinger neighborhood should be completed in a few weeks.

My Edmonds News took a few photos Sunday of the progress at Ballinger Station, a landscaped rest area for trail users at 76th Avenue West and McAleer Way.

Ballinger Station includes an open shelter with a park bench and two interpretive historical panels that tell the story of the Interurban Trolley Line, which ran from Seattle to Everett until 1939. A drinking fountain is still to come, said City of Edmonds Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Director Carrie Hite.

The city is planning on a ribbon cutting ceremony in mid-June, Hite added.

  1. A couple of us rode our bikes on this section of the Interurban almost a month ago…the rest stop gazebo-style cover was in-place at that time, but not the signage, nor the asphalted/paved final connection between 74th & 76th Ave W. It looks terrific, and we are all anxious to ride on this section again to check it out.

  2. Already a great improvement before all is done. Nice to ride along a piece of Edmond’s history!
