Everett - Washington State Department of Transportation will detour traffic around a portion of State Route 527 (Bothell-Everett Highway) near Silver Lake in south Snohomish County. Crews will install a signal at 132nd Street and SR 96 as part of the current SR 527 widening project.
To accomplish the work, crews will close one lane of traffic on SR 527 from 124th Place Southeast to 126th Street Southeast beginning at 9:00 p.m., Sunday, May 1. The detour will begin at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, May 2 and continue until 5:00 a.m. that same morning. WSDOT will provide signs and flaggers to help drivers navigate the detour route around construction. Washington State Patrol will also help with traffic management. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible and allow extra travel time. Also, drivers should be sure to watch for workers in the construction zone.
This weekend’s construction work is part of the last phase of a project to widen the Bothell-Everett Highway. The project includes adding a new lane in each direction between 132nd Street Southeast in Mill Creek and 112th Street Southeast in Everett. Through this project WSDOT will add a new center lane that will alternate as a two-way left turn lane, a left turn only lane at some intersections and a planted median. Once complete, the widened roadway will reduce congestion and improve traffic flow and safety on this heavily traveled state route.
