Construction closures are on the way on I-5

0

Summer travelers on Tacoma state highways are seeing notable changes as contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation continue to widen and improve Interstate 5 and State Route 16. WSDOT recently published a blog about what drivers can expect for summer travel, and what work is left on the Tacoma/Pierce County HOV program.

Night ramp, lane and street closures

Next week, crews will continue paving and will install formwork on the newly set girders. This work requires overnight lane closures for northbound and southbound I-5 between South 48th Street and the Puyallup River, and both directions of SR 16 near South Tyler Street.

The City of Fife is also implementing overnight lane and ramp closures for its Port of Tacoma Road project.

Overnight travelers are encouraged to plan for extra travel time and be familiar with alternate routes and detours.
