Stretch of State Avenue to be closed Tuesday, Wednesday

Contractors are placing a bridge at 100th Street NE, near Fred Meyer in Marysville.

MARYSVILLE — Two blocks of State Avenue are to be closed from 7 a.m. Tuesday to 7 p.m. Wednesday as construction workers set a new bridge at 100th Street NE in Marysville.

Local access to businesses and residences will remain open, according to a news release from the city.

Detour signs will direct traffic to use 51st Avenue NE instead of State Avenue. To reach either of those streets from 116th Street NE, drivers are advised to use 136th Street — there is no detour south of 116th Street NE.

Those who use the detours should expect to add 10 to 15 minutes extra to their trips.

Once the project is finished, State Avenue between 100th Street NE near Fred Meyer and 104th Place NE is expected to have five lanes instead of three, along with a curb, gutter, sidewalks and street lighting to improve traffic and pedestrian safety. It’s set to be complete next year.
