SR 529 Ebey Slough bridge closed tonight, this weekend


May 17, 2012

MARYSVILLE – Drivers headed to or from Marysville tonight or this weekend will need to plan ahead for closures of State Route 529 at the Ebey Slough Bridge.

Crews will close southbound SR 529 at the Ebey Slough Bridge at 8 p.m. Thursday, May 17, while they install utility conduit. The highway will reopen at 5 a.m. Friday, May 18. Drivers will follow a signed detour using 4th Street in Marysville and southbound I-5 during the closure.

Weather permitting, crews also will close both directions of SR 529 all weekend so they can remove the temporary connection from the new bridge to the existing southbound roadway and construct the permanent connection. The highway will close at 8 p.m. Friday, May 18, and reopen at 5 a.m. Monday, May 21. Drivers will follow a signed detour using northbound I-5 and 4th Street in Marysville during the closure. Crews will escort bicyclists and pedestrians through the closure if needed.

The work is part of the SR 529 Ebey Slough Bridge Replacement project. WSDOT is replacing the 85-year-old Ebey Slough Bridge with a four-lane, fixed-span bridge. For details, graphics and photos, visit:
