SKYKOMISH — Heading into the Memorial Day weekend, traffic on U.S. 2 was alternating through one lane Friday near Milepost 53, prompting backups. Crews had discovered a sinkhole beneath the westbound lane, prompting emergency repairs.
Crews filled the hole with cement and both lanes were open to traffic at 1:05 p.m. Friday. Congestion was still expected — but only for the usual holiday travel reasons.
1:15 p.m. UPDATE: All lanes of US 2 at milepost 53 are BACK OPEN to traffic. Thanks to our crews for the hard work, and you travelers for your patience.
