U.S. 2 closure
Westbound U.S. 2 between Highway 9 and the Bickford Avenue overpass is expected to close from 8 p.m. tonight to 5 a.m. Friday for repair work.
The Highway 9 onramp to westbound U.S. 2 is also scheduled to close.
The Bickford Avenue onramp to westbound U.S. 2 will remain open. A signed detour via Highway 9 and Highway 204 is planned.
During the closure, contractor crews for the state Department of Transportation will replace an attenuator at the Bickford Avenue overpass that was damaged in a collision last week. An attenuator absorbs the impact when a vehicle collides with a solid object.
Sky Valley salutes its own: The 16th annual Sky Valley community awards ceremony is scheduled for Feb. 15 at Sultan High School.
At the free event, local organizations expect to celebrate people who have made a difference. The Sky Valley Chamber of Commerce sponsors with the help of volunteers.
Organizers have lined up music and potluck dinner at 5 p.m. followed by the awards at 6 p.m.
