How You Benefit
Cross GlyphImproves Safety
Replacing the old and deteriorating bridge expansion joints prevents the risk of the joints unexpectedly popping up into traffic and damaging vehicles.
Deteriorating joints can compromise the integrity of bridges. Replacing the expansion joints on these bridges preserves safety and extends their life.
Dollar Sign Glyph Economic Incentive
New expansion joints reduce the need for emergency repairs which are costly and can inconvenience drivers, particularly if lanes need to be closed during peak commute times.

Partnerships & Cooperation
WSDOT coordinated very closely with the cities of Everett, Marysville, Arlington, the Tulalip Tribes, Snohomish County, transit agencies and local businesses to review the project closure plans and maximize public outreach.
