EVERETT — A semi truck hit a bridge between Everett and Marysville on Monday afternoon, shutting down northbound traffic on Highway 529.
Everett police closed down northbound traffic at East Marine View Drive, according to a tweet at 2:40 p.m.
Police expected the road would be “closed for an extended period while the integrity of the bridge is inspected.”
The closure prompted a reroute of traffic to I-5, leading to major backups on the freeway.
There were no reports of injuries from the semi crash.
The oversized load is now off the northbound SR 529 bridge in Everett, but the structure will remain closed until we can conduct a thorough inspection. pic.twitter.com/MxFYiRlUkd
