Work on Pilchuck River Bridge begins evening of Friday, Aug. 7, please plan ahead for delays

SNOHOMISH – Travelers, heed the warning now. From 8 p.m. Friday, August 7, to 4:30 a.m. Monday, August 10, both directions of US 2 will alternate through one lane over the Pilchuck River Bridge in Snohomish. This lane reduction makes up for June’s rained out repairs.

Flaggers will alternate both directions of US 2 traffic through a single open lane, which will increase travel time and congestion in the area. This work is weather dependent.

During the closure, two expansion joints, original to the nearly 40-year-old bridge, will be removed and replaced. This preservation project reduces the risk of future costly emergency repairs.

Help keep traffic moving
To keep delays to a minimum, travelers through this area should consider:

  • Delaying discretionary trips
  • Traveling before 8 a.m. or after 8 p.m. to avoid peak congestion
  • Carpooling

For the safety of travelers and our crews, this project will follow COVID-19 safety guidelines.
