Washington State Department of Transportation will soon begin repaving projects, including one in Lynnwood, as weather warms up.
In Lynnwood, a major project will repave SR-99 at the interchange to State Route 525. Work on the $4.1 million project is expected to begin in mid-June. During that time, crews will:
- Repave more than half a mile of SR 99 between Shelby Road and Lincoln Way.
- Repave more than 1mile of SR 525 between 148th Street and 132nd Street
- Repave on- and off-ramps at the SR 99/SR 525 Interchange.
- Reconstruct 17 curb ramps to create a safer transition from roadway to sidewalk.
Work will occur mostly at night on Sundays through Thursdays.
“The pavement in this area is cracked and littered with potholes, and the pedestrian ramps and traffic islands are too small and too steep,” WSDOT Project Engineer Dave Lindberg said. “While our crews are out repaving the roadway, they’ll also upgrade ramps and create pedestrian cut-troughs on two traffic islands.”
