WSDOT built a new two-lane bridge to replace one of the oldest bridges on a Washington state highway, a 17-foot wide single lane bridge on SR 9. WSDOT also realigned the highway to remove three curves. Realigning the highway allowed SR 9 to remain open through most of construction. The new bridge and realigned highway improve traffic on SR 9 for the rapidly growing communities in northeastern Snohomish County.
The new two-lane bridge eliminates the need for drivers to yield to on-coming traffic. The new alignment eliminates a sharp curve in the highway and improves sight distances.
| Economic Incentive
The new bridge will require less maintenance, reducing that cost and freeing up crews for other needed work.
Partnerships & Cooperation
Throughout the process, WSDOT coordinated closely with Snohomish County and the Stillaguamish Tribe.
