Durable lane-striping coming to I-5 through Marysville

MARYSVILLE — Crews are gearing up for a lane-striping makeover on seven miles of Interstate 5 through Marysville.

Drivers should plan for four straight nights of lane closures, weather permitting, starting on northbound Interstate 5 on Sunday, Sept. 16.

From Sunday, Sept. 16, through the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 18, crews will close up to two lanes of northbound I-5 between state routes 528 and 531 nightly, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

From Tuesday, Sept. 18, through the morning of Thursday, Sept. 20, crews will close up to two lanes of southbound I-5 between state routes 531 and 528 nightly, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., to remove and replace lane stripes.

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

This work is part of a coordinated plan to replace fading lane stripes on highways and freeways across the state. Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews are re-striping specific locations on I-5 in Marysville to improve visibility for drivers.
