Expect delays, backups between Lake Stevens/Snohomish and Everett
Due to work on westbound lanes of US 2

Westbound US 2 closed from 7 pm Friday night (tonight) to 4 am Monday

Chronicle staff

(REGIONAL) – As the headline says, be prepared to be patient and expect some delays as you sit there in your fine internal combustion engine powered automobile in a traffic backup between Lake Stevens/Snohomish and Everett on Highway 2.

And be sure and leave the heaters (handguns) at home just in case, you know, the rage should come upon you. And don’t tweet while you’re sitting there either. No, no, no don’t do that. You could end up banging out a wild, angry, nasty, seething, incoherent Trump-like spazmo tweet that could start World War Three and also get you fired.

Instead, breathe deeply. Go into that Zen moment. Be the sound of that one-hand clapping because this is the first of six planned weekend closures of all westbound lanes of US Highway 2 (that we here at the Chronicle often refer to, and not in jest, as ‘The Highway Of Death’) between Lake Stevens/Snohomish and Everett for work on the infamous 3-mile preservation project the details of which would take too long to get into here because you’re eyes would glaze over and eventually you’d say something like, “Dude. A little too much information, OK?”

OK bro. We’re down with that. Suffice to say that the fine folks at the Washington State Dept. of Transporation (WSDOT) have personally requested (as they are want to do now and then) that this fine, family oriented publication relay to you the fact that this weekend specifically, the agency is focused on “removing the pothole-riddled, rut-ruined and cracked pavement between the SR 204 interchange and Ebey Slough.”

Here here! Raise your glasses to WSDOT. That’s a fine stroke of business in our book. Then work crews will inspect the westbound trestle, make any necessary repairs and “lay down new asphalt.”

That’s the stuff we love, laying down that new asphalt. That’s because when you drive on it for the first time (after it’s down and dried) that bad boy is smooth as silk. You just sail on down that road with your foot barely upon the accelerator. It’s one of life’s small, but distinct pleasures.

Also be advised that the on-ramps to westbound US 2 from SR 204 and 20th Street Southeast are also closed. (See map above right)

The detour

20th Street Southeast will be reversed to be westbound only. Drivers will detour under the trestle then up the ramp to rejoin westbound US 2 just before the I-5 interchange.

Change your plans and expect BIG backups

20th Street is one lane and can’t handle all the vehicles displaced from westbound US 2. So, WSDOT needs every driver to alter their plans or try something new during the closure to help keep traffic moving.

The five other westbound US 2 closures are tentatively scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday on the following weekends:

  • June 1 - June 3

  • June 22 - June 24

  • June 29 - July 1

  • July 13 - July 15

  • July 20 - July 22

These dates are weather-dependent. That means if there’s a tornado (or large frogs falling out of the sky like in that passage from The Bible) this stuff could be delayed.

There’s was a movie a few years back that actually used that scene from The Bible (the frogs falling) but we can’t remember the name of it.

In any event, thank you for your attention to this traffic matter. Carry on.
