Crews will stabilize hillside and finish paving

LYNNWOOD – If your Saturday plans take you through the Lynnwood/Bothell/Mill Creek area, prepare for around-the-clock traffic delays while crews finish the heavy lifting on the State Route 524 roundabouts project.

Washington State Department of Transportation contractor crews with A-1 Landscaping and Construction, Inc. will close both directions of SR 524/Filbert Road between Locust and Larch ways starting at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26. The road will reopen at 12:01 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 28. Signed detours will be in place.

During this weather-dependent closure, crews will pave the final layer of asphalt around both roundabouts to provide travelers a smoother ride. Crews will also excavate and flatten the steep hillside on the northwest corner of the Larch roundabout.  This work will prevent landslides that could block the roadway and lead to emergency closures.
