SR 526 - Airport Road to Casino Road Seismic Retrofit - Complete December 2023

Project overview

Our contractor crews strengthened four bridges along State Route 526 in Everett so they can better withstand a major earthquake. They wraped steel “jackets” around the columns that support the bridges to hold the concrete together in an earthquake, reducing the chance of collapse. They also added concrete and reinforcing steel between the girders that support the bridges to keep them from moving in the event of an earthquake.

February 2023 to December 2023

What to expect

Major construction has completed on this project. No more closures are expected at this time.

The on-ramp from Seaway Boulevard to eastbound State Route 526 was one of four Everett bridges that was seismically strengthened during the project.
