42 mile paved trail will run from Woodinville to Renton
Multi-use trail will connect to four future light rail stations
Elected officials and community partners on Saturday unveiled Eastrail, the new name for the emerging 42-mile multipurpose previously known as Eastside Rail Corridor.
They also announced a new nonprofit partner that will help complete its transformation from a lightly used freight rail line to an uninterrupted paved trail.
The trail will reach from Gene Coulon Park in Renton through Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, and extend north to Woodinville and Snohomish County. It will connect to four light rail stations that Sound Transit will open in 2023 as part of its East Link extension.
