WSDOT Northwest Region construction updates

 

Month-long SR 522 ramp closure starts Tuesday
 

I mentioned this previously but now it's here. If you use State Route 522 near Monroe, be ready because the fly-over ramp to eastbound US 2 closes for a month starting at 10 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2.  That's 24-hours-a-day.  It will reopen at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 1.

 

We did this closure earlier in August as well and it's not hard to still access eastbound US 2.  Drivers continue to the end of SR 522 where a signalized intersection allows motorists to turn east or west onto US 2.

 

During the closure, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will waterproof the concrete deck on the existing Main Street/164th Street Southeast bridge.  They will also rebuild the approaches to the existing 179th Avenue Southeast bridge.

 

In order to create a safe work zone, traffic must be temporarily shifted onto the new bridges at 164th and 179th Avenue Southeast bridges.  The proximity of the US 2 exit to the 179th Avenue Southeast bridge work zone is too close to allow drivers to safely use the exit.

 

The work is part of the SR 522 widening project, which adds two new westbound lanes to the highway from US 2 to the Snohomish River Bridge.  The widening project is scheduled to be complete in late 2014.

 

SR 9 turn restrictions end at noon Friday

The left-turn restrictions at the intersection of State Route 9 and 84th Street Northeast end at noon on Friday, Aug. 29.  They've been in place since Thursday, Aug. 21 as contractor crews for WSDOT work on the new roundabout.  When it reopens, the intersection will operate as a roundabout with no signals.  But while it's open, the work there isn't done.  We still need to do curb work, paving and restriping so continue to stay plugged in on closures at our Snohomish County Construction Update page.  And if you're feeling unsure about how to maneuver through a roundabout, here’s some tips and a video.  Oh, and a big thanks to everyone for their patience and help as we got that work done.

 

Labor Day weekend travel info

It's the last holiday weekend of the summer (booo!!!) and we always see heavy travel for this last gasp.  The good news is we have no scheduled construction projects for the three-day weekend, but do remember that we still have our southbound closure of the Stillaguamish River Bridge, so expect increased traffic over the northbound bridge, which is handling both directions of travel.  Whether you’re headed out of town for fun or into Seattle for Bumbershoot or Mariners or Sounders games, be sure to use our online tools to prepare and know when the best times to travel are.  More info can be found here.  Be safe, and have a great long weekend!


WSDOT Northwest Region construction updates


I-5: Southbound I-5 Stillaguamish River Bridge - Major Bridge Rehabilitation  #8582


Mileposts: 207.2 to 211.1 

 

Tuesday, July 29 through November - All southbound I-5 traffic is reduced to two lanes and will use a new crossover across the median to two lanes of northbound I-5 across the Stillaguamish River Bridge, crossing back over on the other side of the bridge, until the project is complete in November. Northbound I-5 is reduced to two lanes from SR 530 to 236th Street Northeast as well. Drivers should prepare for a 55 mile per hour speed limit in both directions in the work zone.


Washington State Department of Transportation

TRAFFIC ADVISORY

Aug. 28, 2014   

Drivers should prepare for extended closure of SR 522 ramp to eastbound US 2

 

MONROE – Drivers who use State Route 522 near Monroe should be prepared for a  month-long closure of the SR 522 fly-over ramp to eastbound US 2. The ramp will be closed from 10 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2 through 5 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 1. 

 

Drivers can still access eastbound US 2 by traveling a short distance to the end of SR 522 where a signalized intersection allows drivers to turn east or west onto US 2.

 

During the extended ramp closure, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will waterproof the concrete decks on the existing SR 522 West Main Street/164th Street Southeast and 179th Avenue Southeast bridges. They will also rebuild the approaches to the 179th Avenue Southeast bridge.

 

In order to create a safe work zone, traffic must be temporarily shifted onto the new bridges over 164th Street Southeast and 179th Avenue Southeast. The proximity of the SR 522 179th Avenue Southeast bridge work zone to the US 2 off-ramp is too close to allow drivers to safely use the exit.

 

There will also be other nightly lane and ramp closures associated with this work. Check the Snohomish County construction update report frequently for updated information.

 

The work is part of the SR 522 widening project, which adds two new westbound lanes to the highway from US 2 to the Snohomish River Bridge. The widening project is scheduled to be complete in late 2014.


Sales Tax Rate Increase Goes Into Effect
October 1, 2014


Effective October 1st in the City of Marysville, a two-tenths of 1% sales tax increase (8.6% to 8.8%) on items purchased for business or personal use will take effect for transportation system improve-ments. The effective date had previously been misreported.

 

Marysville voters last April approved a 0.2% sales tax increase on the ballot to generate $1.6 million per year over 10 years for the community's unmet transportation system needs, and to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety and access. Transportation Benefit District (TBD) projects were chosen by the City Council acting in its capacity as the TBD Board of Directors.

For more information, visit the TBD website at http://marysvillewa.gov/tbd


Outdoor Burn Ban in Effect

until further notice

 

Due to high fire danger and expected hot and dry weather conditions, an outdoor burning ban for the unincorporated areas of Snohomish County is in effect beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, July 12.  This affects all outdoor burning except for recreational fires.

 

Recreational fires are less than 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet high, and are for cooking or pleasure only.  They must be contained within a fire pit that has been cleared of all combustible material within a 10 foot radius, must be monitored at all times and must have a water source readily available.

 

This burn ban is in place until further notice. All outdoor burning permits, including those issued by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency, are suspended until the ban is lifted. Residents who live within the boundaries of an incorporated city or town should check with their local fire department for current burn ban information.

 

Please call the outdoor burning information hotline at 425-388-3508 for updated information or visit http://snohomishcountywa.gov/1144/Outdoor-Burning-Information

Climb aboard big rigs at Touch-A-Truck on Saturday, Sept. 13

 

MARYSVILLE – The City of Marysville invites your family to Touch-A-Truck, a free annual event that puts your kids behind the wheel of public works big rigs, police and fire vehicles, and other heavy-duty equipment that children see out on City streets every day.

 

Touch-A-Truck will be 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13 at Totem Middle School’s Asbery Field, 1605 7th St. NE. Admission is free.

 

 “Kids are captivated by Marysville’s big rigs. They can’t wait to climb aboard, get a look around inside, and honk the horns,” says Andrea Kingsford, Recreation Coordinator in the City Parks and Recreation Department.

 

Public Works Director Kevin Nielsen says Touch-A-Truck is a favorite annual event that his employees take pride in and look forward to, making sure that their vehicles are clean inside and out.

 

“Touch-A-Truck gives grownups and kids a chance to meet with our sanitation workers, street crews and other team members that you see out working around the City every day,” Nielsen says. The event also provides a chance to explain what workers do, how their rigs, heavy machinery and equipment are used, and how much they cost.

 

Marysville Public Works, Police, Parks and Recreation and Marysville Fire District personnel will bring young people face to face with their favorite vehicles. Kids will have fun exploring dump trucks, a vactor truck, street sweeper, garbage trucks, police vehicles, fire engines and many other vehicles, while learning all about them from the skilled employees who drive them.

 

The City is also proud to welcome its newest participating partner agency, the 364th Expeditionary Sustainment Command. The U.S. Army Reserve unit headquartered in Marysville will be bringing an assortment of military vehicles.

 

Marysville Noon Rotary Club will offer special activities for kids and Marysville Kiwanis Club will have treats for sale to raise money for local youth programs. Bring a canned food item and help support the Marysville Community Food Bank.

 

Camera not required, but you will be glad you brought one. For more information call the Parks and Recreation Department at (360) 363-8400. No pets, please.

The kids showed all the enthusiasm and awe of genuine fans, and the truck's crew members were glad to meet the people who truly appreciate the beauty of a good truckSirens and horns permitted from 10 a.m.-noon only.
