Snohomish County’s Public Works Department began the multi-year Seattle Hill Road improvement project on April 10, 2017. Traffic has been briefly delayed during construction while flaggers have been directing traffic along sections of the road between 132nd Street SE and 35th Avenue SE.
A full Seattle Hill Road closure north of 148th Street SE to south of 141st Street SE will occur from 6:00 am on Monday, August 14th, until 10:00 pm on Friday, August 18th.
The detour route for most traffic is 35th Avenue SE and 132nd Street SE.
According to Snohomish County Public Works, “Residents whose only access to their property is via this section will be allowed through the closure from the north end of Seattle Hill Road only. Residents who can access their property via alternate routes, will be required to do so.”
One more full-road closures will be necessary before the project’s scheduled summer 2018 completion.
The third full Seattle Hill Road closure in the 4700 block near 132nd Street SE is tentatively scheduled for spring 2018.
