Road disruptions starting around Highway 9 in Lake Stevens

Lane reductions and closures are part of the work to improve the intersection at Highways 9 and 204.

LAKE STEVENS — Drivers who take Highways 9 and 204 should prepare for lane reductions and road closures the rest of the month.

Roadwork prompted the closure of Market Place, and Highway 9 will drop to one lane, starting Tuesday night and each weekday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. until Oct. 1.

Through Friday, Sept. 24, crews plan to close Fourth Street NE just east of the ramp to northbound Highway 9. They are building a new right-turn pocket from the highway. Drivers can still access the Lake Stevens Transit Center.

The work also will close 92nd Avenue NE permanently to southbound traffic from Fourth Street NE to the highway. That shift is designed to improve traffic flow around Frontier Village as part of the $69 million project to improve the intersection of Highways 9 and 204, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

People heading west can access Highway 9 or Frontier Village via 99th Avenue NE, turning onto Market Place and then turning right to the highway.

While Market Place is closed at the Highway 9 intersection, travelers can go south on 99th Avenue NE, turn right on Fourth Street SE and turn right onto the highway.
