MARYSVILLE — Part of State Avenue is expected to close for about a week, starting 7 p.m. Friday.
Crews plan to build a bridge over Quilceda Creek, between 100th Street NE, near Fred Meyer, and 104th Place NE. The stretch is scheduled to reopen May 25.
Businesses and residential access will stay open, and detour signs will be placed. Drivers who use this route should expect to add about 15 minutes to the commute.
This first phase is expected to take about a year. The city has yet to secure funding to finish the rest of the road.
In the end, this part of State Avenue will have five lanes instead of three, as well as a curb, gutter and sidewalk. Street lighting to improve traffic and pedestrian safety also is set to be added.
