Contractor crews return to Everett on Monday night, Feb. 13, for pavement grinding over three weeks to smooth out the two right lanes of northbound Interstate 5 from Lowell Road to the Snohomish River Bridge.

Crews will work nightly from Monday, Feb. 13, through Thursday, Feb. 16; Tuesday, Feb. 21 through Thursday, Feb. 23; and Saturday, Feb. 26, through Thursday, March 2.

Lane reductions begin at 8 p.m. each night. All lanes will be reopened by 6 a.m. the following day.

One lane will be open for all traffic through the work zone. Subfreezing weather could delay this work.

Crews will use diamond-tipped grinders to even out the right two lanes of pavement so that newly replaced concrete panels match with existing panels to create a smooth, safe driving surface. If crews can complete grinding the two right lanes ahead of schedule, they have a contingent plan to grind the left lanes Tuesday, Feb. 21, through Thursday, Feb. 23, and Saturday, Feb. 26, through Thursday, March 2.
