33rd Ave W Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge

Updated September 2, 2020

What's happening now?

We're currently in the early design phase and are working toward the first milestone (30% design) in late 2020. Over the next several months, we'll evaluate conceptual design alternatives for the bridge's rehabilitation or replacement. 

As a part of the design process, we're hosting an online event to engage with area neighbors.

Project overview

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is evaluating the feasibility and options to rehabilitate or to replace the 33rd Ave W Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge in Magnolia. While still safe to use, the bridge is showing signs of deterioration. This timber bridge connects people walking and biking across an active railroad corridor to Commodore Park and the Ballard Locks area. There are no plans to remove the 33rd Ave W bridge, and the bridge is still safe to use.

Project location 

Located in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle, the 33rd Ave W Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge is located near the Salmon Bay waterfront. The bridge is an important part of Seattle's biking and walking network and links Magnolia to Ballard and the Burke-Gilman Trail. The bridge crosses an active railroad corridor, which runs through the city from the Industrial District in the south to Broadview in the northwest.

We're aiming to complete early design (30%) by late 2020, with 60% and 90% design continuing into mid-2021.


This project is funded through 90% design. Final design and construction are currently not funded for this project.
