Light rail construction will close northbound I-5 overnight Friday between State Route 104 and 220th Street SW.


Sound Transit plans a large concrete pour for the project’s bridge over the freeway.

The northbound lanes of I-5 will close around 11:59 p.m. Friday and reopen at 5:00 a.m. Saturday. Detours are planned with police officers posted at key intersections to help direct drivers. 


Light rail is scheduled to begin service in Mountlake Terrace in 2024, with a 10-minute ride to Northgate.
