Pavement Restoration Work in Everett Begins

Crews repaving streets in Everett

Starting today, street resurfacing in Everett has started and will address several locations. The repaving work was awaiting Memorial Day to finish, so now crews have a green light to start the repaving projects that will conclude at the end of the summer.

Crews will grind down and remove older pavement, install new traffic signal detection devices, and repave & restripe the roadways. Work may happen during the day and/or at night depending on the project (denoted below in Red).

The order of work is expected to be:

  • Pacific Avenue from Fulton Street to Pine Street (Night work)
  • 41stStreet from Colby Avenue to Broadway overpass (Night work)
  • Colby Avenue from 41st Street to 40th Street (Night work)
  • 37th Street from Broadway to McDougall Avenue (Day work)
  • 37th Street from Colby Avenue to Broadway (Day work)
  • West Casino Road from Airport Road to 5th Ave West (Day work)
  • Alley between Nassau Street and Norton Avenue from Pacific Avenue to 32nd Street (8am to 10pm M-F, 8am to 5pm weekends)

Signs and message boards will be posted advising motorists of detours, street closures and parking restrictions.

Flaggers will assist with the traffic flow and some work will occur as early as 6 am on weekdays and night work at some locations. 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 everettwa.gov/overlay.

More about pavement maintenance:

Road maintenance is an essential part of keeping residents and goods moving throughout our community. Regularly and proactively maintaining our roadways saves money, takes less time and reduces wear and damage to all modes of transportation: car, buses, bikes and more.

Overlay is a maintenance function. If the pavement isn’t maintained through regular overlay, it loses the substructure, what’s below the pavement surface. Once that happens, it would be necessary to dig all the way down to the subgrade and reconstruct the roadway. Reconstruction of the pavement is many times more expensive than an overlay.

Buffered bike lanes coming to West Casino Road:

As part of the overlay project, new wider bike lanes will be added to West Casino Road, and a buffer will be added to provide a safer and more comfortable experience for cyclists. These lanes will connect bicyclists to services on West Casino Road and Evergreen Way, residential neighborhoods, bus routes and the southwest Everett manufacturing and industrial center. More information about the improvements to the bike lanes on West Casino Road can be found at everettwa.gov/activewestcasino.
