I-5 Lane Restriping Tonight North of Everett

The end is in sight for the narrowed, shifted lanes and reduced speed limit that are part of the northbound Interstate 5 #SnoCoSqueeze near Marysville.

restriping

WSDOT Map of where the work is happening.

Beginning Sunday, June 26, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will restripe the lanes on I-5 over the Ebey Slough Bridge back to their normal locations and 12-foot widths following bridge expansion joint replacement work. The speed limit will also be returned to 60 mph.

Lane closures for restriping – Sunday, June 26 to the morning of Monday, June 27

  • One lane will close at 8 p.m.
  • Two lanes will close at 9 p.m.
  • The State Route 529 on-ramp to northbound I-5 will close at 9 p.m.
  • A third lane will close at 11:30 p.m.
  • Rolling slowdowns will occur between 11:59 p.m. and 4 a.m.

At least one northbound and the SR 529 on-ramp will be open by 5 a.m. Monday and all lanes will be open by 8 a.m.

Earlier efforts to restripe were delayed by rain and the availability of the striping subcontractor.

The lanes over the northbound Ebey Slough bridge were reduced to 11 feet wide and shifted to one side of the bridge earlier this spring for the bridge preservation work. The speed limit was also lowered to 45 mph.

After restriping is completed, the contractor still has a few more weeks of overnight lane closures to finish installing rumblestrips and fixing wheel ruts in the concrete.

Car Hits Man After Altercation on Everett Mall Way

Everett Mall Way

Medics and firefighters work on the victim.

Everett Mall Way

The Lexus driver likely never saw the man coming.

The eastbound lanes of Everett Mall Way were shut down after a strange incident Saturday afternoon.

Everett Police are still investigating but reports are a man ran right into traffic on Everett Mall Way after an altercation with several others.

He ended up directly in the path of a silver Lexus going eastbound near the Big Foot Java stand in the 900 block. The man bounced off the Lexus and fell onto the street.

Medics took the man to Providence Regional Medical Center in what appeared to be very serious condition.

The driver of the Lexus did stop after the crash and is cooperating with Everett Police. Patrol officers are working the investigation and we’ll bring you any updates Monday as they become available.

Above are a couple of photos from the scene taken by MyEverettNews.com.
