History

The Interurban Trail follows the route once used by the electric Interurban Railway that ran between Seattle and Everett from 1910 to 1939. Soon after Highway 99 was built, the interurban was abandoned in favor of travel by bus and automobile. Puget Power converted the Interurban corridor to a power line corridor and titled segments to Seattle City Light and Snohomish County Public Utility District #1. In the mid-90s, cities along the corridor between Seattle and Everett began developing portions of the Interurban Trail for non-motorized commuter and recreational use. Car No. 55, one of the six original electric cars that traveled between Seattle and Everett, has been renovated and is now on diplay at Heritage Park.
