Work in Snohomish, Monroe and near Arlington will disrupt drivers

The Washington State Department of Transportation has three road projects that are expected to affect drivers in Snohomish County starting tonight and continuing through next week.

In Snohomish, drivers on U.S. 2 should expect nightly detours this weekend. WSDOT crews plan to work on paving and sealing cracks.

The work is scheduled from 8 tonight to 5 a.m. Sunday. It’s expected to continue during those same hours Sunday night and Monday morning. An eastbound lane and westbound U.S. 2 from Highway 9 to Bickford Avenue are scheduled to be closed.

A detour is set for westbound drivers, who are expected to exit at Bunk Foss Road to northbound Highway 9. The detour takes drivers to westbound Highway 204 to connect with U.S. 2 at the trestle.

The work is expected to extend the life of the pavement and provide a smoother, safer drive.

In Monroe, WSDOT has postponed closing Highway 522 this weekend. It expects to shut it down next weekend instead.

The closure is scheduled from 9:30 p.m. June 28 to 8:30 a.m. June 29.

Crews are planning to pour concrete for the deck of the new Snohomish River bridge. WSDOT expects to release details about a detour next week.

Near Arlington, work is under way on the I-5 southbound Stillaguamish River bridge.

Next week, drivers should expect the exit from southbound I-5 to Highway 530 to be closed nightly from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. The closure is scheduled from Monday night to Tuesday morning and again from Tuesday night to Wednesday morning.

Crews plan to install temporary lighting. A detour via the Smokey Point exit is planned. Drivers should adjust for the delay.
