Several inches of water stretched across the road near the Pilchuck River crossing.

The roadway beneath a railroad bridge was the apparent reason for concern.

Beyond90Seconds.com streamed live from the area; first from the road closure barrier on Lincoln Avenue, then from railroad bridge area.  The live streams were recorded and can be viewed below.

Not sure how long the road remained closed, but some good news came at 1pm on Monday.  That’s when the U.S. Geological Survey tweeted that the Snohomish and Snoqualmie Rivers had begun receding.
