In summer 2014, crews replaced 277 concrete panels on I-5 between Northeast 117th Street near Northgate and SR 104 in Mountlake Terrace.
Panel replacement work was followed by grinding all the lanes to smooth bumps, remove wheel ruts and provide a better surface with increased traction.
The work extends the life of the road and improves driver safety.
A new overhead electronic sign providing traveler information was also installed on southbound I-5 near the NE 145th Street interchange.
Repairing the concrete reduces bumps and cracks, making for a safer, smoother ride.
Grinding the concrete creates more friction for vehicle tires, improving traction and safety.
| Economic Incentive
Doing the repair work saves money in the long term and helps reduce the need for emergency repairs.
