LYNNWOOD — Construction is slated to begin Monday on a new intersection at Maple Road and Ash Way near Alderwood mall. The intersection likely will remain closed for construction until November.
The Interurban Trail also will close, between Beech Road (behind the Target store) and Alder Way. Shoppers will still be able to access local businesses.
Snohomish County and Lynnwood are working together on the $7 million project, which will rebuild roadway with structural slabs on top of steel piles, as well as raise the surface by roughly five feet.
The intersection was built on a peat bog and the crossing has been sinking about an inch a year. Flooding is a frequent problem.
