In August 2013, Snohomish County Surface Water Management replaced an undersized culvert beneath 67th Avenue, north of 152nd Street, near Marysville. The existing 5-foot concrete box culvert often backs up, causing water to overflow onto the road, disrupting traffic and damaging the pavement.
Crews installed a new, 14-foot by 6-foot box culvert under the road. The 52-foot-long culvert included a 3-foot sump to collect sediment and features a permanent flow bybass so crews can complete regular maintenance. The new will reduce the chance for flooding and improve fish passage.
This is the first phase of a systemwide project that will include upstream and downstream work in the stream channel.
During construction, crews cut through the road to remove and replace the culvert. 67th Avenue north of 152nd St. closed Aug. 1 for up to three weeks, and drivers used signed detours during the closure. One lane of 152nd Street also closed during construction. Large trucks and oversize vehicles used 132nd St. as a detour route. For more project information, download an informational postcard (pdf).
Construction began in late July. All lanes of 67th Ave. north of 152nd St. were closed from Aug. 1-21. We coordinated our work with WSDOT's project to repave 172nd St. near the Arlington Airport.
