WSDOT announces projects on SR 9
August 27, 2008 · Updated 3:53 PM
For the next five weeks, the Washington State Department of Transportation advises motorists to expect daytime single-lane closures on Highway 9 north of Arlington, as crews working for the Snohomish County Public Utility District remove trees next to the road and relocate utility poles. This is the first step in a project intended to make Hwy. 9 safer and relieve congestion between Schloman Road and 268th Street NE.
WSDOT also reports that crews will break ground the week of June 4 on a project that will improve safety and traffic flow by adding right-and left-turn lanes at the intersection of Hwy. 9 and 108th Street NE/Lauck Road. Lane closures will take place only at night for the next few weeks, but WSDOT urges motorists to plan ahead, since crews will close access from Hwy. 9 to westbound Lauck Road for a 15-day period that could begin as early as June 25, and drivers will need to take a signed detour to get around the closure.
