Revive I-5 crews return for overnight work Saturday, May 18 to install sensors for traffic control

SEATTLE – Overnight lane reductions on northbound Interstate 5 in south Seattle this weekend will allow crews to install sensors that help with traffic control. People who rely on I-5 should prepare for lane reductions beginning at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, May 18, until 8 a.m. Sunday, May 19.

Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will reduce northbound I-5 to two lanes between mid-Boeing Field and just north of the Bailey Street/Michigan Avenue ramp.

With northbound I-5 reduced to one lane, travelers should:

  • Allow extra travel time.
  • Consider alternative routes.

This project also includes weeknight lane reductions, which allow crews to complete additional work such as replacing concrete panels and grinding rough surfaces. Crews will take a break for the Memorial Day weekend holiday but will return for weekend-long lane reductions on northbound I-5 starting Friday, May 31.

This Revive I-5 project is just one aspect of the critical preservation work occurring in the state. Lane and ramp closures on northbound and southbound I-5 will continue between Seattle and Tukwila until fall.
