Beginning in early August 2021, Snohomish County Public Works will address sidewalk gaps along the west side of Damson Rd across from Hilltop Elementary School in Lynnwood. Crews will install a concrete sidewalk north of the Hilltop Fire Station (20510 Damson Rd), as a continuation of the sidewalks that were installed in front of the fire station in 2018. The project improves pedestrian access for residents and students of Hilltop Elementary School.
Construction is scheduled to begin in early August and will last approximately 10 days. Work will occur Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Crews will be practicing COVID-19 prevention protocols during this project. Please maintain six-foot social distancing.
Drivers should expect minimal delays during the day with slightly longer wait times during commuting hours. There will be single lane closures on Damson Rd, requiring one-way traffic during construction hours with two-way traffic returning at the end of the work day.
Pedestrian assistance through the work zone will be available during construction hours. Access to the crosswalk will be available during non-construction hours.
Funding for the $192,000 project will come from the Snohomish County Road Fund.
