Lowell-Larimer Road to close for two weeks

Projects include repairing a drain line, installing catch basins and other work.

EVERETT — A 300-foot section of Lowell-Larimer Road is expected to be closed for up to two weeks starting April 23 while Everett Public Works crews perform a variety of road and utility maintenance and repairs.

The closed section will be in the 7400 block. A detour will take drivers onto various county roads.

Projects include repairing a drain line, installing catch basins, water main work and inspections, and stabilizing the shoulder.

“That’s four different crews of staff doing four different disciplines,” said Kathleen Baxter, a spokeswoman. “The reason for that is to try and minimize the impact to the community, to not drag it out.”

Wet ground makes slides a frequent problem on the rural roadway.

“There will always be some movement, usually at very slow speed,” Baxter said.

Last fall saw more movement than usual. The shoulder in that area was shored up then. The upcoming work involves finishing touches.

A school bus stop in the area will not be affected by the closure.

The road will be closed again, for a much shorter amount of time, around early summer for a planned overlay project.
