US 2, SR 542, 547 and 548 - Highway Resurfacing - Complete October 2019

Needs & benefits

In 2019, contractor crews with Doolittle Construction, LLC resurfaced more than 35 miles of roadway, on four different highways in King, Snohomish and Whatcom counties. Resurfacing the highways preserves the integrity and life of the roadway. This project, which repaired pavement, sealed cracks and put down a new thin road surface, is a cost-effective way to preserve the highways and help prevent costly and unexpected emergency repairs. Crews resurfaced:

Snohomish County

  • US 2 between Mount Index Road near Index and Eagle Falls west of Halford.

King County

  • US 2 between Northeast 182nd Street/east of Baring and Northeast Old Cascade Highway/Money Creek campground.

Whatcom County

  • SR 542/Mount Baker Highway between Britton Road in Bellingham and St. Peter’s Catholic Church/Markel Road west of Kendall.
  • SR 547/Kendall Road between Peaceful Valley Drive and Saar Creek/Hillview Road.
