June 2007Crews built a containment system to make sure that no debris or chemicals are released into sensitive wetland areas under and near the trestle.Crews have sandblasted rust, dirt and loose concrete from the girders.Next, crews will use a carbon fiber mesh to repair the girders. Once the mesh is in place, crews will use hand trowels to apply concrete over the exposed steel.May 2007Crews finished paving eastbound 20th Street under the trestle on May 25. Westbound traffic will use this road as a detour during construction this summer.Crews are building platforms that they'll use during the repair work.The Ebey Slough Bridge is located on US 2 east of Everett. The viaduct and bridge are used by more than 37,000 vehicles everyday. The Ebey Island Viaduct and Ebey Slough Bridge make up a mile-and-a-half-long stretch of westbound US 2 between I-5 and SR 204. We will save money by extending the life of the bridge and viaduct to help keep them safe for the many drivers who rely on them.
The bridge and viaduct are almost 40 years old and are increasingly showing signs of wear.This work will repair 136, 40 foot long girders under US 2 that are severely damaged.The concrete and steel will be repaired to preserve the road for the many drivers who use it every day.Local officials and members of the media tour the project site during the 2007 construction season kickoff event on March 26.
