A weekend heads-up from the Washington State Department of Transportation.

If you plan to travel on State Route 526 overnight Sunday, Sept. 10, including late-night trips to Seattle Paine Field International Airport in Everett, please plan for a nighttime closure of the westbound SR 526 off-ramp to Airport Road.

Beginning at 11 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, through 4:30 a.m. Monday, Sept. 11, you will not be able to use the off-ramp from westbound SR 526 to Airport Road. A signed detour will be available around the closure, but plan for extra travel time, especially if you are headed to the airport.

This is part of our project to strengthen four bridges along SR 526 in Everett to better withstand a major earthquake. During the closure, our contractor crews will change pavement markings, reducing the off-ramp to a single lane.

After the lane reduction on the ramp, people still will be able to turn left at Airport Road or continue straight to the on-ramp back onto westbound SR 526.

The off-ramp will remain in this configuration until work to strengthen the support structures on the west side of the SR 526 bridge over Airport Road finishes later this fall.
