Section of 49th Street to close April 5 for utility work

MARYSVILLE — Motorists in the Sunnyside area are advised that 49th Street, from 71st Avenue to 49th Place, will close to traffic from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, April 5.

The purpose of the closure is to enable city Utility Construction crews to tie newly installed water mains into an existing larger main, according to city Operations Manager Karen Latimer. The work is part of the improvements being made related to the transfer of water service in the Sunnyside/Soper Hill Road area from former purveyor Snohomish County PUD to the city of Marysville.

Door hangers are being distributed to affected residents, and alternate routes are encouraged.

For questions about this street closure, contact Latimer by phone at 360-363-8100 or via email at
