Outdoor Burn Ban in Effect

until further notice

 

Due to high fire danger and expected hot and dry weather conditions, an outdoor burning ban for the unincorporated areas of Snohomish County is in effect beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, July 12.  This affects all outdoor burning except for recreational fires.

 

Recreational fires are less than 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet high, and are for cooking or pleasure only.  They must be contained within a fire pit that has been cleared of all combustible material within a 10 foot radius, must be monitored at all times and must have a water source readily available.

 

This burn ban is in place until further notice. All outdoor burning permits, including those issued by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency, are suspended until the ban is lifted. Residents who live within the boundaries of an incorporated city or town should check with their local fire department for current burn ban information.

 

Please call the outdoor burning information hotline at 425-388-3508 for updated information or visit http://snohomishcountywa.gov/1144/Outdoor-Burning-Information

Sales Tax Rate Increase Goes Into Effect
October 1, 2014


Effective October 1st in the City of Marysville, a two-tenths of 1% sales tax increase (8.6% to 8.8%) on items purchased for business or personal use will take effect for transportation system improve-ments. The effective date had previously been misreported.

 

Marysville voters last April approved a 0.2% sales tax increase on the ballot to generate $1.6 million per year over 10 years for the community's unmet transportation system needs, and to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety and access. Transportation Benefit District (TBD) projects were chosen by the City Council acting in its capacity as the TBD Board of Directors.

Midweek detours from SR 530 near Oso to start in August


Traffic will return to the Seattle City Light access road on a one-way, piloted basis 9 p.m. Tuesdays through 4 a.m. Thursdays

     OSO – Drivers traveling through the section of State Route 530 near the site of this spring’s tragic landslide should allow extra time for their trips on certain midweek dates during August.  

     Contractor crews from Guy F. Atkinson Construction have been making progress since June on building the new, elevated SR 530 just south of the existing roadway. To advance to the next phases of construction they will need to divert traffic from the existing roadway for 31-hour periods each week in August.

     During those times, traffic will return on a one-way, piloted basis to a neighboring single-lane gravel road, known as the Seattle City Light access road. Pilot cars will escort westbound traffic at the top of the hour and eastbound traffic on the half hour, around the clock. Drivers are encouraged to arrive early.  

     “The detours for this project are scheduled during the middle of the week to minimize traffic impacts to the community, and avoid conflicts with major summer events,” said Washington State Department of Transportation Regional Administrator Lorena Eng. “We appreciate the continuing patience and support from the communities of Arlington, Oso and Darrington, as well as their many visitors this summer.”  


Detour details

The first set of detours to the Seattle City Light access road are currently scheduled for:

 

·         9 p.m. Tuesday, August 12 to 4 a.m. Thursday, August 14

·         9 p.m. Tuesday, August 19 to 4 a.m. Thursday, August 21

·         9 p.m. Tuesday, August 26 to 4 a.m. Thursday, August 28 (contingency date if needed)

 

     The detours are subject to cancellation based on construction progress. During these detours, crews will install two new culverts under the roadway for improved fish passage and complete paving, guardrail and restriping work to connect the new, elevated eastern section of the roadway with the existing SR 530.

     At all other times during August, traffic will continue to operate on a two-way basis on the existing SR 530. Drivers should continue to add about 10 minutes to their trips, as they will experience intermittent flagging 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday to allow safe movement of construction vehicles and equipment.  

     WSDOT will announce any detour schedule changes in advance through a variety of means, including the project website, the SR 530 email list, project hotline, social media channels, traffic advisories and roadway signage.  


Rules of the Seattle City Light access road


·         The speed limit is 10 mph.

·         Stops along the road are not permitted.

·         Pilot cars will escort drivers westbound at the top of each hour and eastbound on the half hour around the clock.

·         Logging trucks are permitted between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m.

·         Trailers and vehicles over 15,000 pounds are not permitted.

·         Drivers are encouraged to arrive early.

·         Local access will be provided to residents within the work zone.


Next steps for the permanent road

     Crews will continue working throughout the summer to build a permanent new section of SR 530 south of the existing roadway, moving next toward the west side of the slide area. Substantial completion of the new alignment is expected in early October.

     The March 22 landslide changed the geography of the valley floor and the Stillaguamish River North Fork, increasing the chance of flooding along the corridor. As a result, the roadway must be rebuilt and elevated.

     The SR 530 reconstruction project is funded with $28.1 million of Federal Emergency Relief funding.

TRAFFIC ADVISORY

 

I-5 speed limit reduced to 55 mph near Arlington for Stilliguamish River Bride renovation


ARLINGTON – Drivers in both directions of Interstate 5 near the Stillaguamish River bridges should be prepared for reduced speeds for the next several months. The speed limit will be temporarily lowered from 70 to 55 mph between Smokey Point and 236th Street Northeast near Arlington.

 

Both directions of I-5 have been reduced from three lanes to two in each direction as contractor crews for the Washington State Department of Transportation prepare to replace the southbound I-5 Stillaguamish River bridge deck and some of the steel framework that supports it.

 

Later this month, the two lanes of southbound I-5 will shift onto the northbound bridge. A concrete divider wall will separate northbound and southbound traffic. After the shift, the southbound bridge will be closed for about 120 days. Crews will remove the 81-year-old deck, repair some of the supporting steel, then pour a new concrete deck.

 

When work is complete in November, southbound I-5 will return to the bridge that was built in 1933 and both directions of I-5 will be restored to three lanes on separate bridges.
