EVERETT – After a short respite, drivers should once again expect detours and delays this week when crews resume full closures of the westbound US 2 trestle for girder repairs.
Crews will close westbound US 2 between State Route 9 and Interstate 5 at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 12, and Thursday, July 14, while they repair girders supporting the trestle. The roadway will reopen by 5 a.m. the following morning. The ramps from SR 204, 20th St. and Bickford Ave. to westbound US 2 will close starting at 6:30 p.m. each night and will reopen by 5 a.m. the following morning.
Drivers will follow a signed detour using SR 9 and SR 528 to the north and SR 9 and SR 96 to the south. Drivers should allow 15 to 35 minutes for their trips depending on their destination and current traffic conditions.
This work is part of the $8 million US 2 trestle rehab project. Crews will close the westbound US 2 up to 65 nights this summer while they repair 844 girders supporting the trestle. For project details and a detour map, visit www.wsdot.wa.gov/Projects/US2/TrestleRehabStage2.
