- This project was operationally complete on Sept. 19, 2013. Operationally complete means the roadway is open to traffic and the majority of the work is complete.
- There may be additional lane closures in spring 2014 to complete some pavement marking work.
- Check out the construction update report for a complete list of highway lane and ramp closures.
Why is WSDOT
repaving southbound I-5 in Lynnwood and nearby ramps?
The pavement along this section of I-5 and on nearby on- and off-ramp is wearing down after years of heavy traffic. It's showing signs of deterioration and rutting, and needs to be resurfaced. In order to reduce annual maintenance and repair costs, and to keep the freeway open for daily drivers and freight haulers, the old pavement needs to be replaced.
WSDOT will grind down the old pavement, repair damaged areas and repave southbound I-5 from 52nd. Ave. W in Lynnwood and to SR 104 in Shoreline. We will also repave the on- and off-ramps at SR 104, 236th St. and at 220th St. SW.
The End Result
This project will extend the useful life of the pavement and improve safety for the approximately 165,000 drivers who use this stretch of I-5 daily.
- This project will extend the useful life of the pavement by approximately 20 years.
- New reflective lane markings will improve visibility for drivers, especially during adverse weather.
