We know closing the bridge will affect many daily routes and travel patterns, and we will ask for your patience during construction so we can strengthen our transportation system against seismic events and provide better multimodal travel options along Mukilteo Blvd.
The project team is coordinating closely with the Mukilteo School District and the City of Mukilteo, among other stakeholders, to minimize disruptions to the school transportation network and construction projects in the area. We plan to sequence construction so the bridge will not close until after the 2022-2023 school year ends. School bus routes will be detoured for the 2023-2024 school year, and we are working with the Everett and Mukilteo school districts on that planning. Major routes will have well-marked detour signs, and we will make sure the closure is captured by popular mapping and wayfinding apps.
