Paving starts on I-5 through Marysville; Highway 528 in June

Once dry weather is here, Cemex Construction Materials Pacific will start repaving I-5 through Marysville.

The work area includes an 8-mile stretch of southbound I-5, from just north of Highway 531 to Highway 529. Crews also will repave about 7 miles on the northbound side, from Highway 529 to 136th Street NE.

Drivers could see crews set up signs and do some prep work starting on Monday.

The state hopes to start paving May 14. During paving, there will be lane and ramp closures between 8 p.m. and 9 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays.

About 162,000 vehicles travel the area each day.

The entire 15-mile paving project is expected to cost $9.7 million.

This is one of two state paving projects coming up for Marysville.

A separate project later this summer will repave nearly two miles of Highway 528 (64th Street NE) between 55th Drive NE and 83rd Avenue NE.

The $2.4 million project will require overnight lane closures, 7 p.m. to 11 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and occasional closures 7 p.m. Saturday to 11 a.m. Monday. Work is set to start in June. Up to 21,300 vehicles travel the stretch each day.

All paving work relies on weather; schedules could change.

It’s been more than a decade since I-5 was paved in Marysville, and 16 years since the Highway 528 stretch was paved.
