Delays Likely As DOT Plans Rolling Slowdowns Overnight Thursday Into Friday Between Everett And Marysville

October 3, 2018


Late night travelers who use Interstate 5 between Everett and Marysville should prepare for big delays during the overnight hours of Thursday, Oct. 4.


A warning for overnight drivers on I-5 Thursday night into Friday morning.

Snohomish County PUD crews will perform several intermittent rolling slowdowns in both directions of I-5 from 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, to 4 a.m. Friday, Oct. 5. The rolling slowdowns will allow crews to safely pull power lines overhead, across the highway.

Southbound I-5 traffic will gradually slow starting at State Route 528 in Marysville. Northbound I-5 traffic will slow starting at the 128th Street Southwest/SR 96 off-ramp. Pilot cars will lead the slowed traffic through the work area until the roadway is clear, then allow traffic to accelerate back to highway speeds.

Ramp closures
The following northbound I-5 on-ramps will be temporarily blocked during the rolling slowdowns:

  • 112th Street Southwest Park and Ride
  • Everett Mall Way
  • State Route 527
  • State Route 526

The following southbound I-5 on-ramps will be temporarily blocked during the rolling slowdowns:

  • Marine View Drive
  • Westbound US 2 to southbound I-5
  • Pacific Avenue

The ramp closures will allow the slow-moving traffic on the mainline to get by, and will reopen once traffic is clear.
