Northern Strand Community Path Extension, Everett

City of Everett
Everett, Massachusetts

The City of Everett sought to build upon the success of the northern sections of the Northern Strand Community Path by continuing it to the Mystic River. The extension of the Northern Strand to the south will provide a connection for residents and commuters alike to the Gateway Center, the Wynn Boston Harbor, and destinations across the river into Boston. A safe, comfortable path will allow Everett residents to choose to bike or walk, whether out of desire or need, and will provide another recreational resource.

HSH will create a concept that addresses the physical and environmental challenges of completing a new section of the Northern Strand Community Path project from the trail’s current terminus near downtown Everett to the Mystic River near the Wynn Boston Harbor. The design will tie into the resort’s plan for a riverwalk along the Mystic River, and potentially to a pedestrian and bike bridge across the river. We will also prepare a Functional Design Report and an environmental filing once the stakeholder group has settled on a preferred concept.
