Revive I-5: Preserving a vital freeway

Project overview

Dozens of preservation projects are planned to revive Interstate 5 in King and Snohomish counties. Washington’s main freeway was built in the 1960s and needs major preservation and renovation work. Over the coming years, Revive I-5 projects will include pavement repair and full replacement, expansion joints, and seismic work to strengthen bridges against earthquakes. While many projects are included in the draft plan; others are not funded at this time. Maps below show the various projects.

Now into 2030s
Each project is individually funded. Costs vary.

What to expect

During construction of the various projects, people can expect nighttime lane, ramp and directional closures, weekend-long construction, including lane reductions and directional closures and full-time lane closures that last several days.

Our draft 10-year plan for I-5 in the Seattle area includes more than two dozen projects.
