An important update for drivers who use northbound I-5 between the Boeing Freeway and 41st street in Everett today…


Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will close the right lane of northbound Interstate 5 in Everett for emergency roadside repair work from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25. The lane closure will take place about a mile before the 41st Street and Broadway exits.

During the lane closure, WSDOT maintenance crews will stabilize the slope on the right shoulder of the highway. The attached photo shows the specific spot crews will repair. With rain in the forecast, this work must be done now to prevent further erosion of the slope.

The emergency repair work is taking place two days before the Thanksgiving Day holiday, which is one of the busiest travel times of the year. WSDOT traffic engineers expect to see congestion begin in the area of the lane closure around 1 p.m.

In the Seattle area, drivers can get real-time traffic information on their phone with the WSDOT traffic app, tracking the WSDOT traffic Twitter feed, and get advanced information from the What’s Happening Now page.
