Repairs for collapsed culvert to close Everett’s Larimer Road

Drivers may need to find an alternate route for days.

EVERETT — People who use Larimer Road in the Lowell neighborhood should find a different route starting Friday, and maybe the following week, too.

An 18-inch concrete culvert pipe under the roadway collapsed at 5700 Larimer Road, near the Franklin Street loop.

“Our guess right now is that it failed due to age, but we won’t be sure until we can get in there to look at it,” Everett Public Works spokesperson Kathleen Baxter said.

The city will repair it and could need to repair or replace other infrastructure there, depending on what crews find after digging up the road. City records don’t include the installation date, Baxter said.

The cost estimate wasn’t known.

At the work site, Larimer Road will be closed to through traffic. Local access will be allowed.

Signs will instruct people on a detour to Lowell Snohomish River Road.
