From a July 10, 2020, Snohomish County press release.
Snohomish County Public Works and Granite Construction will begin paving 1.2 miles of Airport Road/128th Street SE on the evening of Monday, July 13th. The project extends just east of the Home Depot on Airport Rd to the southbound I-5 on-ramp.
Construction will occur each night of the week except Fridays and Saturdays from 8:00 pm to 4:30 am.
During construction there will be one lane open in each direction to traffic at all times and pedestrian access will be maintained. Access to businesses will also be available during construction.
All lanes will be operational during the day, outside of the contractor’s working hours.
Residents may hear construction noise at night. Work is expected to wrap up in October 2020.
The project will preserve the pavement and make for a smoother driving surface for motorists. Crews will use a polymer modified asphalt designed to extend the life of the driving surface by up to five years more than traditional asphalt. This product also provides better resistance to rutting and cracking.
Curb ramps at 19th Place W and Airport Road will be updated to be in compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Advanced traffic detection devices along Airport Road and 128th Street SW will also be replaced so that cars can better trigger traffic signals.
In compliance with the Governor’s order and accepted safety plans, all construction crews will be practicing COVID-19 prevention protocols. Please maintain a six-foot social distance from workers.
This project is fully funded by a $3 million grant from the National Highway System Asset Management program.
