Here’s the official word on the year-long closure of the Broadway bridge between Hewitt and California fresh off the press from the City of Everett…

The closure of the Broadway Bridge is scheduled to start Thursday, Jan. 29, while crews begin work to demolish and rebuild the 102-year-old bridge. During the project, Broadway Avenue will be closed between Hewitt Avenue and California Street for approximately a year, and traffic will be detoured around the work area.

Crews will begin closing northbound Broadway between Hewitt and California at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29. The bridge will be completely closed northbound by 5:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 30.  Drivers will follow a signed detour using Hewitt, Cedar and Everett avenues. Crews will begin closing southbound Broadway between California and Hewitt at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan 30. The bridge will be completely closed southbound by 5:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 31.  Drivers will follow a signed detour using California Street, Virginia Avenue and Hewitt Avenue. Signs will be posted advising drivers of the closure and detour routes. This work is weather dependent and could be delayed if conditions change.

The Broadway Bridge spans over the main line of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad. The bridge replacement project contract was awarded to Interwest Construction in October. The new bridge is expected to open to travel by early 2016. The total project cost, including design and construction, is $13.6 million.

Drivers can follow construction progress and check conditions on detour routes with new traffic cameras available on the project website. For camera links, project details and detour maps, visitwww.everettwa.org/Broadway.

    I like that they are closing SB starting at 7pm on Friday night with a Silvertips game starting at 7:30pm. They should start this on a non-busy traffic night so people can get used to it.
