Noisy nights ahead in Mukilteo
Mukilteo residents can expect some noisy nights in 2020, when the Washington State Department of Transportation begins work on improvements to the bridge on Highway 525, between Second Street and the Mukilteo Ferry Holding Lanes.
The WSDOT recently received a noise variance permit, allowing it o work overnight on the project (but not all in a row) to avoid disrupting ferry traffic. WSDOT expects construction to begin March 1 and to be finished by Dec. 31, 2020.
The work will include a raised crosswalk at Highway 525 and Second Street, stair access to and from the highway, and an overlook plaza and a path under the bridge to the Lighthouse Park and beach.
Christmas tree permits available
People looking to cut their Christmas trees in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest can buy a permit from the U.S. Forest Service online.
The permit will have to be printed to be valid. The Forest Service suggests getting a tree before snow falls. High-clearance vehicles often are needed to reach the areas where cutting is allowed, and the mountain roads are typically narrow and unplowed.
Mount Baker-Snoqualmie is one of 13 national forests participating in the online permit system. Permits can still be purchased at Forest Service stations.
