Full-closure weekends on SR 524 to begin Sept. 21, 28


The two full-closure weekends needed during the construction of two roundabouts on SR 524 in unincorporated Lynnwood have been announced to be the weekends of Sept. 21-24 and Sept. 28-Oct. 1.

The two roundabouts will be build on Filbert Road at Larch Way and Locust Way in an effort to reduce congestion-related crashes, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).

According to WSDOT, from 2011 through 2015, there were 81 collisions at these two intersections that injured 36 people. This was a higher collision rate than the state average for highways of similar size and capacity.

On the weekends of Sept. 21-24 and Sept. 28-Oct. 1, all lanes of SR 524/Filbert Road between Cypress Way and Damson Road will be closed from 8 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday. A signed detour will be in place.

This work is weather dependent.

  1. Improvements to this road are welcomed as it is severely undersized to handle the daily traffic. Shame on the county for two things:
    (1) Scheduling this work on 524 while they still haven’t finished the road improvements on Maple Road. Both are used by Eastbound folks trying to get home. Overlapping this work has compounded the traffic issues.
    (2) Allowing the awarded contractor to leave such a rough patch of temporary blacktop while they wait for the weekend work. Folks must slow down simply to navigate over the rough roadway. Makes an unsafe intersection even more dangerous.
