Bridge repair in Snohomish and Skagit counties
The following week, April 11-14, crews will move east within Snohomish County for work on the South Fork Skykomish River Bridge on US 2 in Gold Bar. Flaggers and a pilot car will assist travelers as eastbound and westbound traffic alternates through a single lane while crews work.
The weekend of April 14-16, crews will fully close the bridge on State Route 9 over the Skagit River between the South Skagit Highway and Diamond Road in Sedro-Woolley. Travelers will be detoured around the closure using SR 20, SR 538 and I-5.
This work is weather-dependent and may be rescheduled.
Pavement repair is front and center this construction season, so drivers should use WSDOT traffic tools before heading out the door.
