More lane closures on I-5 in Lynnwood tonight

LYNNWOOD – Lane closures for repaving work are planned for I-5 in Lynnwood tonight.

Crews plan to close up to three lanes of southbound I-5 between the I-405 interchange and 196th Street SW to begin repaving a section of ground-down pavement. Lanes also were closed earlier this week for preliminary work.

Lanes are scheduled to close at 10 p.m. tonight and reopen at 8 a.m. Saturday. Drivers should expect minor delays.

Repaving work will begin in earnest next week and continue for approximately three weeks, Mishler said.

Drivers should prepare for nightly lane and ramp closures from Monday through Thursday.

For lane closures, the schedule is as follows:

Monday night, up to two left lanes; the first lane will close at 8 p.m. and the second at 10 p.m.

Tuesday through Thursday nights: up to three lanes; the first will close at 8 p.m., the second at 10 p.m. and the third at 11 p.m.

All lanes will open by 5 a.m. the following day.

Ramp closures:

Monday and Tuesday nights: the Ash Way direct access ramp to southbound I-5 will close at 8 p.m.

Wednesday and Thursday nights: The southbound I-5 exit to 196th Street will close at 9 p.m.; the southbound

Highway 525 exit to I-5 will close at 10 p.m.; and the northbound I-405 exit to southbound I-5 will close at 11 p.m.

All ramps will open by 5 a.m. the following day.

The work represents the finishing touches to a $32.5 million ramp reconfiguration project. For more information go to
