LYNNWOOD, Wash. — A roughly mile-long stretch of the Interurban Trail in Lynnwood closed Monday for 10 months.

The section of trail, located between 52nd Ave W and 44th Ave W, is expected to reopen May 1, 2022, according to Sound Transit. A detour will be provided for trail users during the closure.

The stretch of trail is closed so crews can continue to build the nearby Lynnwood City Center Station. Sound Transit said crews will also continue construction on the new parking garage and will work to restore the Scribner Creek area.
