WSDOT Construction Work on SR 527 to Impact Traffic on July 23

The Washington State Department of Transportation will restripe a small section of SR 527 along the southern border of Mill Creek between 173rd Street SE and 15th Avenue SE on Sunday, July 23. This work will allow WSDOT to shift the lanes to the left, which will provide a wider and safer shoulder for pedestrians and bicyclists.

This section of road is by Li’l Sprout Nursery at 17414 Bothell-Everett Hwy. This work is dependent on the weather.

The restriping work requires one northbound lane to be closed at a time between 3 a.m. and noon.

The lane closures will happen in four stages on Sunday, July 23:
3 a.m. – Crews will begin setting up the work zone
4 a.m. – Right northbound lane will close to traffic
8 a.m. – Right lane will reopen; left northbound lane will close to traffic
Noon – Both lanes will reopen to traffic

In addition, the center turn lane will be closed between 12 a.m. and 2 p.m.

This work may impact access to Li’l Sprout Nursery & Garden Center, located on the west side of SR 527. Once the restriping is finished, there will no longer be a center turn lane in front of the south driveway to the nursery. Instead there will be a doubled-lined median. There will still be a turn lane for access into the business at the north driveway for those traveling northbound on SR 527. People also will be able to turn left out of the north driveway onto northbound SR 527. Those using the south driveway will only be able to turn right onto southbound SR 527.

Decreasing the width of the median will the provide room needed to increase shoulder width along the highway.

This work was originally slated to take place in June, but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.
