Overnight closures scheduled on SR 529 in Marysville

MARYSVILLE — Drivers headed north on State Route 529 to Marysville should allow some extra time for their trips or plan to take alternate routes on the evenings of Aug. 30 through Sept. 2.

Crews will close northbound SR 529 across the Ebey Slough Bridge at 9 p.m. on Aug. 30 for construction work. The roadway will reopen at 10 a.m. on Aug. 31. Drivers will follow a signed detour around the area. Closures at 9 p.m. and reopenings at 10 a.m. the following days will continue through Sept. 3, when the roadway will reopen again at 10 a.m.

Drivers should also plan ahead for the weeks to come, as crews drive steel poles into the ground to form the foundation for a temporary work platform next to the existing bridge. The work is noisy and could be visually distracting, so crews urge drivers to stay alert and use caution through the work zone. Drivers should plan for single-lane daytime closures in future weeks, as crews move equipment in and out of the construction area.

This work is part of the SR 529 Ebey Slough Bridge Replacement project. The Washington State Department of Transportation is replacing the 85-year-old Ebey Slough Bridge with a four-lane, fixed-span bridge.
