Drivers can still access eastbound U.S. 2 by traveling a short distance to the intersection at end of Highway 522.
During the ramp closure, contractor crews for the Washington State Department of Transportation plan to remove the asphalt on the eastbound lanes of the West Main Street and 179th Avenue SE bridges. They’re expected to perform repair work, waterproof the concrete and repave the bridges.
Crews also are scheduled to work on highway drainage and pour concrete for median barriers. Traffic can’t be allowed on the bridges while the work is underway.
The upgrades are part of the Highway 522 widening project, which is expected to add two new westbound lanes from U.S. 2 to the Snohomish River Bridge. It’s scheduled to be complete in late 2014.
