Lynnwood Link elevated rail section along I-5


If you travel anywhere at night on local freeways you need to be prepared for ramp and street closures because of Sound Transit construction for the Lynnwood Link.

There are a couple of new closures this month for maintenance. All are at night. Here's a list.
  1. Close southbound I-5 one night under Washington State Convention Center
  2. Reduce northbound I-5 two nights during an in-depth inspection of the tunnel life-safety systems.
    1. 11pm Friday, Jan. 22 to 5am Saturday, Jan. 23: Southbound I-5 will fully close at Stewart St. Mercer and Yale Street on-ramps to southbound I-5 will be closed during this time. 
    2. 11pm Thursday, Jan. 28 to 4am Friday, Jan. 29: A single lane of northbound I-5 will remain open between I-90 and University Street. The I-5 collector-distributor will remain open. The University Street on-ramp to northbound I-5 will close during this time. 
    3. 11pm Friday, Jan. 29, to 5am Saturday, Jan. 30: A single lane of northbound I-5 will remain open between I-90 and University Street. The I-5 collector-distributor will remain open. The Cherry Street on-ramp to northbound I-5 will close during this time. 
  3. The I-5 express lanes will remain open in the direction of each night’s closure to help move traffic through the area.
