Construction will affect traffic on U.S. 2, Hwy. 522

Drivers should be on the lookout for closures for roadwork near Snohomish and Monroe in the coming week.

The state Department of Transportation plans to close westbound U.S. 2 between Highway 9 and the trestle overnight Monday. Crews will install framework and brackets on a new overpass at Bickford Avenue. The road will reopen at 5 a.m. Tuesday. Other lane and ramp closures are planned as part of this work.

More closures for rock blasting on Highway 522 near the Snohomish River are scheduled for 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. each Tuesday and Thursday through February.

The work is part of a $129 million project to widen the highway from Monroe to the river, including a new bridge. The project is scheduled for completion in late 2014.

Westbound drivers on U.S. 2 may detour around the work using Highway 9 and 20th Street SE.

For the roadwork on 522, drivers may use Highway 9 for a detour.
