June brings more overnight I-5 lane and ramp closures in Tacoma

0

During the week of June 3, contractor crews building new ramps and HOV lanes between Interstate 5 and State Route 16 have a series of overnight ramp closures for paving, electrical and form removal work.

Nearby at the Puyallup River, crews building a new southbound I-5 bridge across the river are getting ready for a two-phased traffic switch scheduled for next weekend.

Throughout the week, overnight drivers can expect to see single lane closures on SR 16 near Sprague Avenue and on southbound I-5 between McKinley Way and Port of Tacoma Road.  Lane and ramp closures take place at night when traffic volumes are lower.

Some work is weather sensitive and may be rescheduled. Drivers are advised to plan for extra travel time, adhere to posted speed limits, and give construction crews a brake.
