The City of Everett says weather impacts and a strike are behind the delays with the State of Washington Department of Ecology construction project at East Marine View Drive at Riverside. The project was supposed to be completed last week. Here’s a bit more detail from DOE.

We’re almost done on East Marine View Drive! All lanes should be open the week before Christmas at the latest. Final checks of restored connections to temporarily relocated utilities are under way. Then we’ll add the top layer of pavement, traffic signals and other finishing touches.

The paving layer and markings may be temporary, due to cool weather. If needed, we’ll return in the spring to install permanent paving and markings.

By late January 2019 we’ll start cleanup work at Wiggums Hollow Park, closing part of it. We expect that project to wrap up late this spring. We’ll begin the cleanup – and temporary closure – of Viola Oursler Overlook as soon as March 2019.

We appreciate everyone’s patience with these projects!
