Repaving under way on two portions of highways in north county

Parts of HIghways 530, 531 are affected by summer work

ARLINGTON — A state repaving project is underway on two portions of highways in north Snohomish County.

Project areas include:

• Highway 530 in Arlington from the South Fork Stillaguamish River Bridge to Lake Cavanaugh Road near Oso (11 miles)

• Highway 531 in Marysville from near Lake Goodwin and Wenberg State Park to 11th Avenue NE near Smokey Point (5 miles)

The work is part of a $9.4 million repaving project that includes sites in Skagit, Whatcom and Island counties. In all, nearly 40 miles of highway will be ground down, patched, sealed and resurfaced. Work is expected to wrap up by late summer.

Single-lane closures will cause delays. Work in Arlington is scheduled for daytime hours; in Marysville, overnight. A pilot car will lead traffic through the Arlington work zone.
