How to avoid HWY2

Looking for side roads to avoid backup on HYW2 from Index to Monroe. I have been told you can go from Index to Granite falls then to Arlington....any input ?

You can take Ben Howard from Monroe to Sultan, but after that there isn't anything that runs parallel to HWY 2. If you want the detour, you could take Kellogg Rd way up north and back down to end up in Goldbar, which gets you about 2/3 of the way to Index.

I'll have to find a map. There are a couple other roads too. I found an alternate route into Monroe and a few other short ones along the way I know by sight.
