WSDOT crews closing I-5 lanes at Smokey Point

SMOKEY POINT — Crews will be closing lanes on Interstate 5 at the SR 531 in order to stripe the road starting Monday, June 28.

Up to two right lanes of southbound I-5 will be closed near the overpass from 7 p.m. Monday to 4 a.m. on Tuesday, June 29.

On Tuesday, crews will close up to two left lanes of southbound I-5 between 7 p.m. and 4 a.m. Wednesday, June 30.

Up to two left lanes of northbound I-5 will closed on Wednesday starting at 7 p.m. and concluding at 6 a.m. on Thursday, July 1.

Finally, on Thursday crews will be closing up to two right lanes of northbound I-5 from 7 p.m. until 8 a.m. Friday, July 2.

The project — a two-lane loop ramp from westbound SR 531 to southbound I-5 — is part of a $23.5 million Washington State Department of Transportation project that officials said will improve access to and from I-5.

According to WSDOT, more than 40,000 vehicles use the SR 531 (172nd Street NE)/I-5 interchange each day.

Crews are expected to complete the project this summer, said Meghan Soptich Pembroke of WSDOT.
