Weekend US 2 trestle closure is expected to create a mess

Detours this time will be much longer, and Highway 9 in particular is expected to be jammed.

The westbound U.S. 2 trestle is scheduled for a full closure 7 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Mondayfor the state’s repaving project. Detours this time are much longer and are expected to have bigger traffic impacts.

Drivers wanting to get to I-5 will have to find alternate routes. Official detours follow Highway 9 north through LakeStevens and Marysville or south through Snohomish and Mill Creek.

Closures are weather dependent. Five of the last eight scheduled closures have been canceled because of rainy forecasts.

This is the fourth of six planned closures, which now extend into September past Labor Day. No closures are plannedduring the Evergreen State Fair.
