Snohomish River drawbridge closures continue

EVERETT – More closures of the bridge over the Snohomish River on southbound Highway 529 are planned as crews continue to work on replacing the gear mechanism in the drawbridge.

The bridge is scheduled to be closed nights this week and around the clock next weekend. The bridge also was closed last weekend.

The bridge is scheduled to be closed from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. tonight, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. The weekend closure is planned for 8 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.

Southbound drivers will be detoured to I-5 in Marysville.

Crews are replacing four steel axles, wheels and dozens of counterweight cables on the southbound lift span. The lift mechanisms are showing signs of wear and fatigue after 60 years of raising and lowering 250 tons of counterweight with each drawspan opening.
