41st and Rucker and Pacific and Rucker will receive major upgrades.

Starting Monday work will begin at multiple major Everett intersections to improve how freight gets from I-5 to the Port of Everett. Drivers should expect traffic revisions and periodic lane closures as the project gets underway.

Crews will increase the turning radii of key intersections, upgrade traffic signals and modify traffic flow along the route. The project also includes improvements to enhance pedestrian safety, such as new curb ramps and pedestrian signal upgrades, on 41st Street, Rucker Avenue, Pacific Avenue and West Marine View Drive.

“Port activity is increasing at rapid pace, which benefits the local and regional economy,” said Mayor Ray Stephanson. “This project will improve traffic flow and safety throughout the corridor and help keep freight moving to and from the Port.”

Five intersections will be upgraded— Rucker Avenue and 41st Street, Rucker Avenue and 35th Street, Rucker Avenue and Pacific Avenue, Pacific Avenue and Grand Avenue, and Pacific Avenue and West Marine View Drive. On Rucker Avenue, a dual-left turn lane will be added for northbound traffic turning onto Pacific Avenue.

Work is expected to be completed by spring 2017. The state’s 2015 transportation investment package allocated $670 million to Snohomish County projects, including funding for the freight mobility project. For more information, visit www.everettwa.gov/freightmobility.
