Closures on I-5 in Lynnwood for 196th Street pedestrian improvement project

Some closures of I-5 through Lynnwood are scheduled tonight and tomorrow as part of the pedestrian overpass project under construction along 196th Street SW:

  • Up to three lanes of southbound I-5 at 196th will be closed from 8 p.m. tonight to 5 a.m. Tuesday.
  • Up to three lanes of northbound I-5 at 196th will be closed from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday.

During the closures, crews will take survey measurements as they prepare to install concrete panels on the north side of the bridge. The panels will support a new, wider sidewalk.

WSDOT says when this project is completed this summer it will be easier and safer for pedestrians and bicyclists to connect to the Interurban Trail and Alderwood Mall Boulevard. The project also widens the sidewalk along 196th Street SW.
