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.

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.

    Why is this job being contracted out? So of all the millions in taxes that get paid to the DOT we don’t have people competent enough to get the job done?

    Good. Maybe this time they won’t be using toilet paper to stripe the lanes.
