I moved to Everett alomost 3 years ago, and right as I moved in the Alford St bridge construction began. Now 3 years later and they have yet to finish one half of one side.

This is a joke of a project, and Im sure it will be another 3-4 years before its complete. I would have never moved to Everett if I knew I would have to deal with these problems on my morning commute for the following 6 years

I agree. You never see anybody working there. We'll be lucky if it's only 3-4 years. Pathetic!

They found a 52-inch gas main behind one of the bridge abutments which is causing the delay. All of this is under water. They say April 2014 but I suspect since they haven't even started the other side it may take longer. I go that way every day only because I dread McGrath Hwy.
I go home via McGrath Hwy but it is a nightmare because at Schraff's circle there are police directing traffic! Why? The traffic is horrendous. Are they thinking of putting in traffic lights or something?

Guess again welfare mom,

I would think about renting out apartments,
but there's too many freeloaders like you who pay once, then take a year to throw out.

Some people do actually still work JOBS,
instead of using fraudulent SSI checks, to support their fatherless crotch fruit.

Thanks for playing though.

I also moved to Everett # years ago and have watched the same bridge construction take to long to complete. Before I left Florida to move back I watched them build an eight lane bridge without slowing traffic,and it was completed, and open to traffic in less than seven months, I know it is and easier, because it is Florida ,but come on three years and only on side, this must be another big dig project, over budget,over completion,lt about why there are delays.
