Seattle Hill Road to close 24/7 for 3 days

Residents whose only access to their property is through the work zone will be allowed through.

MILL CREEK — Snohomish County Public Works plans to fully close Seattle Hill Road for three full days this weekend as its major road rebuild project starts to wrap up.

Seattle Hill Road is scheduled to close from 132nd Street NE to north of 136th Street SE, starting at 10 a.m. Friday. The road is expected to reopen by 4:30 a.m. Monday. The intersection at 136th Street will remain open to traffic approaching from the south.

Residents whose only access to their property is through the work zone will be allowed through; all others must use alternate routes. A detour route will be posted for through traffic.

The $8 million project is widening 1.5 miles of the road to three lanes, adding a center turn lane, bike lanes, curbs and sidewalks. The project, which started a year ago, is expected to be completed in August.
