Rock blasting is scheduled to resume this week to widen Highway 522 to four lanes in Monroe. This means drivers should prepare for full closures and take detours that can add 10 miles and about 20 minutes to their travel.
The closures are scheduled from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. Thursday, between Fales/Echo Lake roads and 164th Street SE, just near the Snohomish River bridge. Closures are also scheduled for Jan. 15 and 17 at the same time. Drivers can take Highway 9 and U.S. 2 as detours.
