Tukwila Opens New Ped Bridge

Tukwila elected officials, along with representatives from county, state, and federal agencies gathered this morning under cloudy skies to witness the official opening of the Southcenter Pedestrian Bridge.

The bridge is a portion of a three part unveiling that included a King County Parks Mobility Connection project along Baker Blvd, the new Hotel Interurban/Airmark Apartment building and the groundbreaking for Marvelle at Southcenter, a new seven-story apartment building.

The King County Parks Mobility Connection consists of dedicated pedestrian and bicycle trail that connects the Tukwila Sounder station and the Urban Transit Center at Southcenter Mall. This makes it easier for people walking and people on bikes to travel east to west from the Interurban and Green River Trails to the Southcenter Mall and Urban Transit Center.
