Through December 2023, our contractor crews will strengthen four bridges along State Route 526 in Everett so they can better withstand a major earthquake. They will wrap steel “jackets” around the columns that support the bridges to hold the concrete together in an earthquake, reducing the chance of collapse. They also will add concrete and reinforcing steel between the girders that support the bridge to keep them from moving in the event of an earthquake.
What to expect
People should expect occasional lane closures on SR 526 in both directions during weeknights near Seaway Boulevard.
Work at Airport, East Casino and Hardeson roads has completed.
