Overnight delays expected on SR 527 in Bothell starting June 2
Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will start a project to repave 1.1 miles of SR 527 between Interstate 405 and State Route 524/Maltby Road starting June 2. Crews from Granite Construction Co. will work on the sidewalks and curb ramps, then begin grinding down and repaving the highway by the end of the month.
“This seven-lane section of SR 527 carries 41,000 vehicles a day. It’s rutted and cracked from heavy use. Repaving the highway will increase its lifespan and provide a smoother ride for drivers,” WSDOT Project Engineer Mark Sawyer said.
Repairing the sidewalks and curb ramps will offer more pedestrian-friendly access to businesses and residences. The project also will add more street lights at the intersection of SR 527 and 217th Street Southeast to improve safety for vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
The work will last through the summer and will occur mostly from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. to minimize traffic impacts. Drivers should expect some lane closures and reduced speed limits during construction. At least one lane in each direction will remain open at all times. Drivers can get information about lane closures by checking the construction update report.
