Flooding hits Arlington area

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 4:05PM

The Stillaguamish River overflows its boundaries at Country Charm Dairy at the northeast corner of Arlington Monday noon, when it was difficult to differentiate the main channel of the river from the water-covered field. The water started flowing over the top of SR 530 north of the Lincoln Bridge after 10 a.m. and by 1:15 p.m. the DOT closed the road after the water was six inches deep at the centerline of the road. WSDOT official Kim Glass said they try to keep roads open as long as possible but they finally closed the road when they determined that standard vehicles would have trouble passing, when there was six inches of water over the centerline. There is now six feet of water over the road there at MP22 in Arlington and 250 feet of jersey barrier have been moved into the road by the river, said Glass, the assistant superintendent of the Northwest district of WSDOT. Kim said that drivers who attempt to pass through a closed road may be ticketed if they need rescue services. Weather services were predicting continued rain through 10 p.m. Monday night, with waters expected to recede Tuesday.
