Washington state Department of Transportation crews will close all lanes of northbound Interstate 5 in Everett, Wash., from 128th Street S.E. to State Route 527 from 11:30 p.m. PT Saturday, Jan. 5, to 7:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 6. Crews will begin reopening lanes at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, and all northbound lanes will reopen by noon Sunday.

During this closure, WSDOT contractors will set seven 38-ton concrete girders for the south half of the new 112th Street S.E. bridge that is part of Sound Transit’s South Everett Freeway Station Project. The 112th Street S.E. bridge over I-5 also will be completely closed from 11 p.m. Saturday to 7:30 a.m. Sunday. Signed detours will be in place.

This is the third of four girder settings for this new, wider bridge. Crews built the first half of the bridge last year, and traffic is currently using that half.

The final girder setting, over southbound I-5, is scheduled for the weekend of Jan. 19-20. This will require a total overnight closure of southbound I-5. Next week, Jan. 7-10, drivers should expect weeknight lane closures on northbound I-5 and total overnight closures of the 112th Street S.E. bridge as crews set up the work areas between the new girders.
