  1. Thank you – it would help if you added that we’re talking about i5 on-ramp at exit 176 and lane closure from i5 exit 176-177 NB… considering this segment is entirely within Shoreline and your article opens with “LYNNWOOD” and left me scratching my head as to where NE 175th St and NE 195th St were

    1. Yup. Take my taxes for something I’ll never use. Fuck 405 let’s give non tax payers the ability to spread drugs all over the state
