More durable lane striping coming to Evergreen Way

Theresa Groomer of Everett writes: “Would it be possible to repaint the turn lanes in the intersection after exiting from SR 526 and turning south on Evergreen Way? It’s a two-lane exit/turn onto southbound Evergreen Way, and vehicles cannot tell which lane to stay in when making the left turn.”

Marla Carter with Everett Public Works responds: “This section of Evergreen Way will be resurfaced and restriped as part of the city’s asphalt overlay project this summer. The roadway will be milled down, the asphalt replaced, and the intersection restriped. The dotted extension lines that separate the two left-turn lanes will be replaced in durable plastic (methyl methacrylate), a material which can last 10 times longer than ordinary paint. The project begins in mid-June and wraps up later this summer.”
