People traveling on State Route 526 overnight Wednesday, Sept. 20, including those heading to Seattle Paine Field International Airport in Everett, should plan for a nighttime closure of the westbound SR 526 off-ramp to Airport Road.

Beginning at 11 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20, through 4:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, people 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 people should plan for extra travel time, especially if they are headed to the airport.

This is part of a project to strengthen four bridges along SR 526 in Everett to better withstand a major earthquake. During the closure, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will complete electrical work at the Airport Road underpass.

Real-time travel information is available via the WSDOT mobile app, the WSDOT Travel Center Map or by signing up for WSDOT’s email updates.
