Lanes are scheduled to be closed tonight on northbound I-5 through Marysville and again Tuesday and Wednesday nights on southbound I-5 in the same stretch for lane striping.

Crews will close up to two lanes of northbound I-5 between Highway 528 and Highway 531, a seven-mile stretch, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. tonight.

Up to two lanes of the same stretch of I-5 on the southbound side is scheduled to be closed the same hours Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

When crews are done each morning drivers will see fresh lane stripes made of a durable, plastic-like material called methyl methacrylate, or MMA. This material lasts longer than paint and can better withstand wear and tear from weather and vehicles, according to the state.

The work is part of a plan to replace fading lane stripes on highways and freeways across the state.

In addition to Marysville, other planned lane striping include I-5 in Lynnwood, Lacey, Tumwater, and the express lanes in Seattle.
