Backups expected as westbound US 2 trestle shuts down this weekend

This project will repave 3 miles of the west end of US 2. Repairs to the westbound lanes will extend from Bickford Avenue to the I-5 interchange, including the Hewitt Avenue Trestle. Eastbound lanes will also be resurfaced from the US 2/SR 204 interchange to Bickford Avenue. (WSDOT)

Transportation officials are warning travelers to avoid the area if possible.

It’s the third of six-weekend closures required to complete the “critical preservation and paving project” on US 2.
