Crews will be busy in Boulevard Park all summer, removing the wooden pedestrian overpass at the north end of the park and rerouting utility lines that the overpass currently supports. Both the main park entrance off Bayview Drive and the entrance at the end of the South Bay Trail will be closed intermittently while utilities are rerouted underground. Pedestrian access via the Taylor Street Dock will remain open.
“New underground utilities will be installed in Bayview Drive up to State Street, resulting in predictable services to the park for decades to come,” said Leslie Bryson, Bellingham’s Park and Recreation Director. “The City asks for everyone’s patience while contractors move around the site with large equipment.” Completion expected in September.
Boulevard Pedestrian Overpass was built in the 1970s to provide pedestrian access to the park from State Street prior to the opening of the South Bay Trail in 2004. The overpass is in poor condition, and has been closed for safety reasons since 2016.
