Westbound U.S. 2 Trestle to be repaved in 2018

It will mark the second year of three years of resurfacing projects from Everett to Skykomish.

SULTAN — Repaving work has wrapped up on U.S. 2 between Sultan and Skykomish.

Two separate projects, totaling $8.3 million, resurfaced 25 miles of road, from Sultan to Gold Bar and from east of Gold Bar to Skykomish.

The work was needed after about two decades of wear and tear.

“We also know this important work caused some delays and altered schedules this summer and want to thank everyone for their patience,” said Lorena Eng, regional administrator for the Washington State Department of Transportation, in a press release.

More work is coming to U.S. 2.

This time, it will require patience at the heavily populated west end.

A project scheduled for summer 2018 will resurface the westbound trestle, plus both directions of U.S. 2 between Highway 204 and Bickford Avenue, for roughly three miles total.

Another project is scheduled for 2019 that will resurface U.S. 2 from Bickford Avenue in Snohomish to the vicinity of Sofie Road, between Monroe and Sultan — a distance of nearly 14 miles.

That project also will add concrete barriers in the median from Bickford Avenue to the Pilchuck River Bridge and widen the median to six feet from the Pilchuck River Bridge to near Roosevelt Road in Monroe. The safety improvements aim to prevent deadly crossover crashes.
