Work crews to begin I-5 repaving work Monday

Interstate 5 commuters through Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood will begin seeing work crews on the freeway and ramps starting Monday, May 20, as a $3.62 million Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) repaving and improvement project gets underway.

Crews will start rebuilding and improving sidewalks and curbs at the on- and off-ramps of I-5 at State Route 104 (244th Street Southwest), 236th Street Southwest and 220th Street Southwest. Later crews will grind down the old pavement of the ramps and of the southbound lanes of I-5 from 52nd Avenue West in Lynnwood to State Route 104. Repairs to damaged portions of the freeway are also scheduled to take place.

Repaving of the freeway ramps and southbound I-5 through the construction area is expected to begin in late June, weather-dependent.

The project includes installation of new reflective lane markings that are expected to improve visibility for drivers, especially during adverse weather conditions. The WSDOT estimates the work will extend the useful life of the pavement by approximately 20 years.

The project, awarded to Granite Construction of Everett, is expected to be completed this fall.
