All westbound lanes, several westbound ramps closed late June 1 to early June 4

EVERETT – Travelers who want to use westbound US 2 to get to Interstate 5 need to adjust their plans starting June 1.

This weekend closure was originally scheduled for the weekend of May 18 - 19, but was rained out. This make-up closure is also weather-dependent.

Contractor crews working for the Washington Department of Transportation will close all lanes of westbound US 2 between the State Route 204 interchange and 51st Avenue Southeast from 7 p.m. Friday, June 1 to 4 a.m. Monday, June 4. Ramps to westbound US 2 from SR 204 and 20th Street Southeast will also be closed.

This is the first of six weekend closures required to complete a critical preservation and paving project on US 2. The work is necessary to keep the highway in a state of good repair for travelers and commerce relying on this vital corridor.
