Here is the link to the City of Everett Ice and Snow control plan recently update by Everett Public Works for 2022.

How to prepare

When the snow hits or ground temperatures freeze

  • Be a good neighbor and clear your sidewalk if you can. By City code, property owners and occupants are responsible for clearing adjacent sidewalks of snow and ice. Pile up cleared snow where it doesn’t impede travel.
  • View a map of Everett priority snow and ice removal routes to see what streets (within City limits) get plowed and treated by City staff.  Sometimes street plowing causes “snow walls” on sidewalks and driveways that you may need to clear.
  • View Everett’s traffic cameras to look at road conditions at 40 locations across the city.
  • Visit everettwa.gov/inclementweather for City inclement weather updates and additional resources.
  • Call Public Works dispatch at 425-257-8821 to report trouble areas on the roads.
  • Increase the distance between you and other cars on the roadway and allow for more time to brake and make turns.
  • Wet snow is very heavy. Be cautious of falling trees and branches and heavy, wet snow accumulations on roofs.
  • As the weather warms back up, clear blocked storm drains of snow and ice to help manage surface water and prevent flooding.

Comments Off on A Heads-Up For Nighttime Drivers On I-5 North Through Everett Between 8 PM And 6 AM

A Heads-Up For Nighttime Drivers On I-5 North Through Everett Between 8 PM And 6 AM

This in from the Washington State Department of Transportation.

Click for more details.

Drivers heading north on Interstate 5 through Everett should plan for longer weeknight travel times tonight, Nov. 28, through Thursday, Dec. 15, while workers damaged pavement.

When the weather permits, Washington State Department of Transportation contractor crews will work for 13 nights, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday, Nov. 28, through Thursday, Dec. 15. At least one lane will be open in the downtown Everett work zone between Lowell Road and Marine View Drive. All lanes of northbound I-5 will reopen by 6 a.m. the following morning.

Between Nov. 28 and Dec. 6, workers will replace damaged concrete panels that date back to the original construction of this section of I-5 in the 1960s. Between Dec. 5 and Dec. 15, crews will use diamond-tipped grinders to smooth out high spots in the travel lanes. The work is part of WSDOT’s project to rehabilitate northbound I-5 between Lowell Road and Marine View Drive.

A contingent work night is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 11. No work is schedule to occur on the nights of Dec. 2, 3, 9 and 10.

People who are traveling can get real-time traffic information on mobile phones with the WSDOT traffic app and by following the WSDOT traffic Twitter feed.

In addition there is additional work planned beyond  Marine View Drive starting Sunday December 4th.

Northbound Interstate 5 will close at Marine View Drive in Everett from 12:01 to 4 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 4, and Monday, Dec. 5, so crews can replace a girder on the damaged 12th Street Bridge. Traffic will need to detour via Marine View Drive and State Route 529.

Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation have been conducting overnight lane reductions along this section of I-5 to prepare to replace the girder. It was damaged in September 2021 when an excavator on the back of a truck struck the girder, breaking out a chunk of it and damaging tensioning wires.

The contractor, Granite Construction, will focus much of the work on the northbound side of the interstate, although travelers should prepare for sporadic southbound I-5 lane reductions.

During the freeway closures, the 12th Street Bridge will be closed.

Overnight closures
As crews prepare to replace the girder, they will reduce northbound I-5 to one lane between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on weeknights. Southbound I-5 may have weeknight single lane closures from 7:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. Work will not take place during the Thanksgiving holiday long weekend.

Damaged girder
Because of the damaged girder, the 12th Street Bridge is reduced to one lane with temporary traffic controls to limit weight on the structure. The first night that northbound I-5 is closed, Dec. 3, crews will remove the damaged girder. The following night they will install the new girder. Once it is in place, the crews will rebuild the bridge deck and barrier.

Meet The Owner – Evergreen Printing & Graphics

Editor’s note: MyEverettNews.com is working to introduce our readers to more independent business owners here in Everett, Washington. We want to highlight their businesses, tell their stories and invite you to shop locally and help move Everett forward. If you know of a business we should feature, send us a suggestion via email: news@myeverettnews.com. Leland Dart – Publisher
 

Mike Simson and his wife bought Evergreen Printing from his parents 8 years ago.

Evergreen Printing is located on 19th SE two blocks south of Costco.

As a teenager in high school Mike Simpson worked at his parent’s (Mel and Kim Simpson), print shop on Evergreen Way just south of the A&W Drive In. He continued working there when the shop moved to 50th and Claremont for five years before moving to its current location at 10530 19th Avenue SE near Silver Lake. “We were the first tenants when this building opened,” Mike told me on my recent visit.

Eight years ago Mike and his wife Susanna bought the shop from his parents. They’ve guided their growth and stability over the years by a simple principal,

“The better our customers do, the better we do,” Mike said. “Their success is our success.”

Over the years local printers have faced immense competition from big online out-of-state printing firms that can undercut prices.

“It’s hard to compete online so customer service is big for us,” Mike said. “We know our customers and they know us, we’re a personal local phone call away and we make sure that once you come here you never want to go anywhere else.”

Evergreen offers full color digital printing, high speed copying, offset printing, bindery and mailing service and more. They also offer delivery and pick-up in the Everett area Monday – Friday.

During the Pandemic they were able to stay open but were still impacted as the majority of their customers are small businesses and many did not survive after having to shut down. “Forty percent of our customers went out of business permanently,” Mike said. “My wife and I weathered the storm by working throughout, no vacations and not paying ourselves for a while, staying small, lean and working our way through it.”

One leftover issue from the pandemic has been supply chain issues that persist to this day. “Our main supplier of envelopes has been out for some time,” Mike explained. “They shifted from producing paper to making cardboard boxes for all of the shipping that has been going on and we’ve had to scrounge and scrape to find envelopes.”

Mike continues to be positive on the printing business and on Everett. He says he’s still having fun and enjoying helping other business owners. They’ve been voted the best print shop in Snohomish County and embrace “keeping it local”.

If you’re looking for a printer for commercial work or things more personal including wedding announcements, signs, banners and posters or need help with graphic design, scanning or high speed copying, check out Evergreen Printing and Graphics.

Their website is easy to use to order online. The phone number is (425) 948-7700, email is: evergreeneverett@aol.com and they’re located two blocks south of the Everett Costco store at 10530 19th Avenue SE Suite 103 Everett, WA. Hours are Monday – Thursday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Fridays 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
