Signs and message boards will be posted advising motorists of detours, street closures and parking restrictions. Flaggers will assist with traffic flow. Some work will occur as early as 6 a.m. on weekdays with night work at some locations. Businesses and residences directly impacted by construction may be provided detailed information prior to construction. The work is weather dependent and may be performed in phases.

The overlay project is an annual asset management project to repair and maintain street surfaces for safety and ride-ability and is necessary for the long-term health of the City’s transportation network. More information about the pavement overlay program, including a list and map of all impacted streets, is available at

More about pavement maintenance

Road maintenance is an essential part of keeping residents and goods moving throughout our community. Regularly and proactively maintaining our roadways saves money, takes less time and reduces wear and damage to all modes of transportation: car, buses, bikes and more.

Overlay is a maintenance function. If the pavement isn’t maintained through regular overlay, it loses the substructure, what’s below the pavement surface. Once that happens, it would be necessary to dig all the way down to the subgrade and reconstruct the roadway. Reconstruction of the pavement is many times more expensive than an overlay.

Buffered bike lanes coming to West Casino Road

As part of the overlay project, new wider bike lanes will be added to West Casino Road, and a buffer will be added to provide a safer and more comfortable experience for cyclists. These lanes will connect bicyclists to services on West Casino Road and Evergreen Way, residential neighborhoods, bus routes and the southwest Everett manufacturing and industrial center.
