Rolling slowdowns on I-5 overnight Tuesday and Wednesday

Tuesday, August 6, 2019

City Light feeder cable work continues for Sound Transit Lynnwood Link Extension will cause rolling slowdowns overnight August 6-8

Seattle City Light continues to support Sound Transit’s Lynnwood Link Extension project by relocating existing overhead power lines on Interstate 5 near NE 185th St in Shoreline.

This work will result in traffic impacts on August 6-8.

To complete this work safely, crews must intermittently conduct rolling slowdowns of traffic in both directions of I-5 to ensure safe work operations and passage for motorists. 

The work will start late Tuesday night on August 6. Traffic will be intercepted and escorted at slow speeds for up to 15 minutes between 196th St SW (Lynnwood) and NE 80th St (Seattle) as crews pull overhead feeder cables across the highway. 

Traffic will return to normal speeds once past the work area.

Rolling slowdowns will occur on the following dates:
Additional Details:
  • Washington State Patrol troopers and contracted crews will intermittently intercept and escort southbound I-5 traffic through the work area beginning at 196th Street Southwest in Lynnwood. 
  • The same will occur for northbound traffic beginning at Northeast 80th Street in Seattle.
  • Traffic using the following on-ramps to I-5 will also be affected:
  • On southbound I-5: 196th St SW, 44th Ave W (Lynnwood), 220th St SW (Mountlake Terrace), SR 104 (Shoreline)
  • On northbound I-5: NE 175th St, 5th Ave NE (Shoreline), NE Northgate Way (Seattle), NE 80th St (Seattle)

Drivers should expect delays and consider using alternate routes during construction.
