Jordan Creek Bridge 214 Replacement

July 2021 Update

The design report and SEPA checklist are available for review. A Land Disturbing Activity (LDA) permit application has been submitted for the proposed project. The LDA public notice has been published in the Everett Herald on Thursday July 8, 2021. A 21-day public comment period will be open until 5 p.m. on Thursday July 29, 2021.


Description


Jordan Creek Bridge 214 is located near milepost 5.8 on Jordan Road. This bridge is located seven miles southeast of Arlington and is a popular route between Arlington and Granite Falls. In June 2019, the bridge was revised to a single lane with new width/weight restrictions. Please check Height and Weight Restrictions for information. 

The existing bridge is a six span, 107-foot long structure that was last re-built in 1981. This bridge is built on timber piles and needs to be updated to meet Seismic Design Codes. Jordan Creek Bridge is considered a seismic lifeline route structure. Seismic lifeline routes are designated as essential to life safety services after seismic events. Funding for a replacement bridge has been secured and construction of a new bridge is proposed for 2024.

Design

Snohomish County is working to complete topographic surveys, hydraulic analysis and soil investigations to support scoping and design engineering of the replacement bridge. The proposed replacement bridge will be two lanes with shoulders and will improve sight distance to meet current design standards.

Traffic Impacts

The single lane revision is only causing minimal delays in peak travel periods. Traffic impacts during construction are under review.

Environmental Review

A SEPA determination will be made later in 2021.
