Work to reduce U.S. 2 to one lane at Pilchuck River

The overnight striping between the lanes is slated to begin Friday night and wrap Saturday morning.

SNOHOMISH — Heads up, drivers, as planned work on U.S. 2 could cut the highway down to one lane for a short stretch between Friday night and Saturday morning.

The Washington State Department of Transportation has crews scheduled to lay permanent striping on the Pilchuck River bridge. People can circumvent the backup through Snohomish.

The work, originally set for last weekend and rained out, depends on the weather.
