Washington State Department of Transportation had to close a portion of northbound I-5 in Everett, Washington this afternoon for an emergency repair.

WSDOT said a concrete panel in the center lane of northbound I-5 lifted about three inches.

Two right lanes are closed just before the Snohomish River Bridge

Northbound I-5 traffic is backed up to the King-Snohomish County line as of 4:30 PM

Lanes will re-open once the asphalt patch is dry.

Traffic through Everett is a mess. Best to avoid if you can. Evergreen, Broadway and Colby are all crawling northbound.
