Description 

The southbound I-5 Stillaguamish River Bridge was built in 1933. It originally carried two lanes in each direction of US 99. When I-5 was built in the 1960s, the bridge became part of the freeway. In 1971, a new bridge was built just east of the original one to carry three lanes of northbound I-5. The old bridge continued to handle three lanes of southbound I-5. The bridge deck was replaced in 2014.

I-5 - Stillaguamish River Bridge (Southbound)
Posted June 16, 2012, by Daryl Mills (greimatter [at] comcast [dot] net)

This bridge was originally built for US99 and was first used as a two lane bridge. It was built wide enough for four lanes and when the US99 expressway was built through this area in the 50's it carried two lanes in each direction. It now serves as the three Southbound lanes of Interstate 5.
