SR 9 - Pilchuck Creek Bridge Replacement - Completed July 2014

Overview
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.

 

How you benefit

Improves safety
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.

 

Funding
