Traffic Alert For Daytime Paving Of Evergreen Way Between Holly Drive And Casino Road

The work began back in November on this stretch of Evergreen Way.

If you normally drive northbound on Evergreen Way between Holly and Casino Road you may want to make plans for an alternate route on Tuesday and Wednesday. Everett Public Works will be paving that stretch as they finish sewer and water main replacement in that neighborhood. Here are the details.

Two northbound lanes of Evergreen Way between Holly Drive and Casino Road will be closed for construction paving Tuesday, March 5, and Wednesday, March 6. The work will take place during the day and is expected to cause long traffic delays. Drivers are asked to plan alternate routes to reduce travel time to their destination.

The section of Evergreen Way has been under construction since November 2018 when the City of Everett’s contractor began work on the South Evergreen Way water main replacement project to replace 100-year-old water pipe. Temporary road restoration has been in place, but a permanent layer of asphalt is needed. The contractor will take one day to grind down the existing temporary pavement and another day to pave.

The Casino intersection is expected to be the most problematic to traffic in the area, especially between 2 and 5 p.m. If possible, drivers should find alternate routes and avoid the work area. Flaggers and officers will direct traffic and provide for public safety.

The closure is in northbound lanes and is south of the typical northbound Boeing afternoon commute route. Morning traffic volumes are low enough in that direction that the traffic revision is not expected to impact the morning commute. Due to temperature constraints, the work cannot be performed at night.

The work is weather dependent and subject to rescheduling if conditions change.
