Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will be paving US 2 from I-5 to Bickford Avenue beginning in May.
This work will remove damaged asphalt and repave both directions of US 2. Additionally, a thorough inspection of the westbound US 2 Hewitt Avenue trestle will be conducted and repairs will be made as needed.
This work will require six weekend closures of the westbound lanes of US 2 between Bickford Avenue and the I-5 interchange. The narrow westbound trestle does not have adequate space for construction crews and equipment, and safely keep a traffic lane open. The work being done during those closures takes much longer than a standard overnight closure of seven hours.
Eastbound paving work will happen during overnight closures.
Tentative weekend westbound US 2 closure dates:
- May 18 – May 20
- June 1 – June 3
- June 22 – June 24
- June 29 – July 1
- July 13 – July 15
- July 20 – July 22
These dates are weather dependent. Please expect traffic delays. During the last two weekend closures of westbound US 2, northbound traffic will detour to State Route 9 through Lake Stevens to Marysville. Southbound traffic will detour to State Route 9 through Snohomish to Mill Creek.
