Snow was the problem. The big fix waits on sun.
Ann Boid, of Arlington, wrote: “Since the very cold weather some weeks ago, many of the reflectors in the middle of the Stanwood Bryant Road (between I-5 and Highway 9) have popped off. Driving at night is dangerous because there is no other lighting for the road, especially around the curves. Can this be fixed?”
James Parker, interim operations manager for Snohomish County Road Maintenance, responded: “We appreciate our residents informing us of missing road reflectors. We are committed to ensuring our roads are safe. The reflective makers may have been removed by a snowplow during normal road maintenance activities this winter.”
Crews placed temporary reflective pavement markers last week. Permanent reflective markers are to be reinstalled this summer, Parker said.
