Jordan Creek Bridge 214 is being revised to a single lane with new weight restrictions to lessen the impacts of heavy truck-loads and extend the life of the bridge.
Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, June 17 through Friday, June 21, 2019. While the bridge will remain open through the week of maintenance, drivers can expect delays of 15 to 30 minutes.
The bridge will remain a single lane until a replacement is constructed. Once construction of the single lane is complete, only minimal delays are expected during peak travel periods. The county is currently seeking funding for a bridge replacement, which is likely several years away.
The existing bridge is a six span, 107-foot long structure originally built in 1981. This bridge is built on timber piles and needs to be updated to meet Seismic Design Codes. Jordan Creek Bridge 214 is considered a seismic lifeline route structure. Seismic lifeline routes are designated as essential to life safety services after seismic events.
Snohomish County plans to complete topographic surveys, hydraulic analysis and soil investigation in 2019 to support scoping and design engineering of the replacement bridge. Funding for the bridge replacement is being sought; no construction date has been set.
The planned geotechnical work should not impact traffic.
