Route description

SR 528 eastbound in Marysville

State Route 528 (SR 528) runs 3.46 miles (5.57 km) from an interchange with Interstate 5 (I-5) east to SR 9, entirely in Marysville.[3][4] The route serves as a connector to Downtown Marysville.[3] WSDOT has found that more than 35,000 motorists utilize the road daily after the I-5 interchange based on average annual daily traffic (AADT) data.[5]

Starting at I-5 exit 199 on the Marysville–Tulalip Indian Reservation boundary,[6] the highway, which continues northwest as Marine Drive towards Stanwood,[4] becomes Fourth Street.[2] After the interchange with I-5, SR 528 intersects Beach Avenue and Cedar Avenue before crossing two railroad tracks that are owned by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway.[7][8] The railroad goes south to Seattle and north to Vancouver, BC.[9] Immediately after the railroad crossing, the road starts forming the northern boundary of the Marysville Mall and intersects Delta Avenue before intersecting State Avenue, known as SR 529 and the former route of U.S. Route 99 (US 99).[3][10]

Then, the highway intersects 47th Avenue, also known as Armar Road,[2][11] before going northwest to cross Allen Creek;[12] SR 528 forms the southern boundary of Jennings Memorial Park at this point.[13] The highway becomes 64th Street and goes due east for the rest of its route.[11] SR 528 intersects 60th Drive, which serves as a connector to the Marysville YMCA;[14][15] the road also serves Allen Creek Elementary,[16] which is part of the Marysville School District.[17] The road then intersects 67th Avenue, a major road traveling north towards Arlington.[4] After the intersection, SR 528 crosses Munson Creek and passes Foothills Park before ending at an intersection with SR 9.[3][11]

History

When the Primary and Secondary Highways were created in 1937, the route of SR 528 became the Marysville branch of Primary State Highway 1 (PSH 1 MA).[18] PSH 1 MA ran from PSH 1 in Marysville to Secondary State Highway 1A (SSH 1A).[18] PSH 1 MA became SR 528 in 1964 during the 1964 highway renumbering, in which the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) replaced the previous system of Primary and Secondary Highways with a new system called State Routes, which is still in use today.[19][20] The highway was built by the state government in the mid 1970s.[21]

Numerous construction projects have happened along the SR 528 corridor, even though its only 3.46 miles (5.57 km) long.[2] The first of these projects, a repaving project, happened in September 2004.[22] The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) repaved the road near Downtown Marysville.[23] The second project involved reconfiguring the SR 528 / SR 9 interchange, by adding a traffic light, wider shoulders and a left-turn lane.[24] The third and latest project, another repaving project, was done during the summer of 2008 and finished in October 2008.[25] WSDOT repaved SR 528 from the I-5 interchange to SR 529,[25][26] about a 0.36 miles (0.58 km) long segment.[2] The project started on June 15, 2008,[27] but didn't end until October 15.[28]
