Overview
Cracks, ruts and potholes are commonplace along US 2 between Sultan and Gold Bar. A paving project scheduled to begin in April 2017 will solve that. Contractor crews will repave an eight-mile stretch of US 2 starting at milepost 21 just west of Fern Bluff Road in Sultan and ending near 10th Street in Gold Bar.

Why is WSDOT repaving eight miles of US 2 between Sultan and Gold Bar?
It has been about 15 years since this section of US 2 was last repaved, and the highway is in need of serious work. There are cracks, ruts and potholes throughout this area where water can pool and freeze, creating difficult driving conditions. About 18,000 vehicles use this corridor every day, and about 12.5 percent of the total is truck traffic.

The End Result
This project will improve driver safety, the ride quality of the highway and extends the life of the roadway. It will also reduce the potential for emergency closures and costly repairs.

Project Benefits
• Preserves infrastructure and extends the life of the highway.
• Reduces the need for costly emergency maintenance repairs and unexpected closures.
