Drivers who use westbound US 2 should plan for the closure of the highway between State Route 9 and Bickford Avenue from 8 p.m. Sept. 16, until 5 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17.
The westbound on-ramp from SR 9 to US 2 will be closed at the same time. Drivers will follow a signed detour via SR 9 and 20th Street Southeast in Lake Stevens. The new Bickford Avenue overpass to westbound US 2 will remain open.
During the closure, a contractor crew working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will install drainage along the westbound shoulder.
This work is part of the US 2/Bickford Avenue intersection safety and culvert replacement project. The new overpass from Bickford Avenue to westbound US 2 opened on Sunday, Sept. 15. The eastbound on- and off-ramps are scheduled to open later this month.
