Repaving Project Causing Significant Delays On Madison Street In Everett, Washington

May 16, 2023



There are multiple moving lane closures and the road is extremely rough for two-wheeled vehicles.


The intersection at Madison and Beverly Boulevard is shut down at times this week for pavement grinding.

It’s time for the annual repaving of streets in Everett, Washington. One of the first projects underway is Madison street between Evergreen Way and Commercial Avenue.

That project started Monday and has already seen significant delays and the closure of the intersection at Madison and Beverly Boulevard at times.

The city is suggesting alternate routes and the Food Truck lot at that corner is also shut down until the 25th of May due to the project.

The work will include repaving portions of Madison Street, from Jefferson Avenue to Sievers Duecy Boulevard, and Broadway, from 41st Street to Hewitt Avenue. It will be necessary to close the intersections of Madison Street/Beverly Lane and Madison/Beverly Blvd., several days each, to accommodate construction. The work on Broadway will occur later this summer and will include closures of the ramps from I-5 to Broadway at 41st Street.

During intersection and ramp closure periods for each phase of the work, detours will be posted. Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes whenever possible.

Signs and message boards will be posted advising motorists of detours, street closures and parking restrictions. Flaggers will assist with traffic flow. To lessen traffic impacts, some work will occur as early as 6 a.m. on weekdays with possible night work for striping. Businesses and residences directly impacted by construction may be provided detailed information prior to construction. The work is weather dependent and may be performed in phases.

The overlay project is an annual asset management project to repair and maintain street surfaces for safety and ride-ability and is necessary for the long-term health of the City’s transportation network. More information about the pavement overlay program, including a list and map of all impacted streets, is available at
