Around Snohomish County

Arlington: 2 lanes reopen on Jim Creek BridgeSnohomish County has reopened the Jim Creek Bridge on Jordan Road to two-lane traffic. The 100-year-old bridge was one of 13 one-lane bridges in the county, but on the well-traveled Jordan Road, a scenic route between Arlington and Granite Falls. A $2.2 million project to widen the span went off schedule last fall when early rains forced the construction to be delayed until this spring.

Construction crews are finishing work underneath the new span, but the roadway and bridge deck have been paved and striped, and reduced speed limit signs will be removed.
