MONROE – Drivers who use State Route 522 in Monroe should be prepared for overnight ramp closures at 164th Street Southeast /Main Street this week. A signed detour via Fryelands Boulevard will be in place during the closures.
The 164th Street Southeast on-ramp to eastbound SR 522 will be closed the nights of Monday, March 17 and Tuesday, March 18 for drainage work. The closure hours are 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Drivers also should be prepared for nightly lane closures of SR 522 between the Snohomish River Bridge and U.S. 2, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday, March 17 to the morning of Friday, March 21. Contractor crews will build retaining walls and perform pavement repair. Flaggers will control traffic through the work zone.
The work is part of the SR 522 widening project, which will add two new westbound lanes to the highway in the Monroe area from U.S. 2 to the Snohomish River Bridge. The widening project is scheduled to be complete in late 2014.
