Online survey

The City of Everett will create a comfortable corridor for people biking, rolling and walking (also known as “active modes”) on California Street, connecting downtown Everett with the US 2 trail. The City identified California Street as a tier 1 priority bicycle connection in their 2011 Bicycle Master Plan. The first steps to develop the project are to consider a wide range of options and invite feedback from the community regarding their preferred design of the project. 


The concepts presented here are feasible options the City prepared to help guide the public discussion. The City intends on revisiting these concepts after reviewing the public’s input and modifying as necessary, within the constraints of other factors such as impacts to the right of way and adjacent development, impacts to traffic, safety, best practices for multimodal corridors, and compatibility with other planned and programmed transportation improvements in the vicinity.

For questions on this project or to request a project briefing to your organization, contact Christina Anna Curtis, P.E., Project Manager at ccurtis@everettwa.gov.

 

The survey is now closed. It was open from October 22nd to December 10th, 2021. Although we are no longer accepting survey responses at this time, the questions are provided below for public record.
