Age, traffic, and weather have contributed to cracking in the pavement.

Cracking on I-5 from 50 years of traffic and weather led to concrete in need of repair.

Overview
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.
