I-5 lane closures for new, durable striping in Marysville and Lynnwood

LYNNWOOD – Drivers can expect overnight lane closures next week on Interstate 5 in Marysville and Lynnwood as crews restripe 10 miles of the freeway.

The new stripes are made of a durable material called methyl methacrylate, or MMA. MMA lasts longer than paint, and can better withstand the wear and tear from weather and vehicles.

Lane closures

Sunday, Sept. 23 - morning of Monday, Sept. 24 - Crews will close up to two lanes of north or southbound I-5 between SR 528 and SR 531 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Monday, Sept. 24 - morning of Wednesday, Sept. 26 - Crews will close up to two southbound lanes of I-5 between 145th St. and the Snohomish/King county line nightly from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Wednesday, Sept. 26 - morning of Friday, Sept. 28 - Crews will close up to two northbound lanes of I-5 between 145th St. and the Snohomish/King county line nightly from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

This work is part of WSDOT’s effort to replace fading lane stripes on highways and freeways across the state.
