What is the Edmonds Waterfront Access Study?
The City of Edmonds is working with our partners to study different ways to improve access to and from the waterfront, including access for emergency responders. Our partners represent Edmonds residents and businesses, Washington State Department of Transportation, Washington State Ferries, Sound Transit, BNSF Railway, Community Transit and the Port of Edmonds.
This study will identify alternatives to street-level rail crossings at Main and Dayton streets that provide safe, reliable and efficient access between downtown Edmonds and the waterfront for emergency responders and people driving, moving freight, using transit, walking or biking. We expect to complete the study in September 2016. We will provide opportunities for the community to be involved throughout the process.
