(EVERETT)– What goes up must come down. For the nearly 60-year-old State Route 529 Snohomish River Bridge near Everett, it’s the drawspan that must go up and come down reliably and safely. To ensure that continues for many years to come, contractors for the DOT are gearing up to get down to work, replacing heavy pieces of machinery that operate the southbound drawspan. Beginning Sunday, drivers traveling between Marysville and Everett will need to use Interstate 5, while the southbound lanes of SR 529 are closed from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights. The drawspan will not open for marine traffic during the highway closures. Drivers will also experience up to two weekend closures before this $3.2 million project is complete in October.
