New signs, bridge girders bring overnight closures on I-5

0

Contractor crews building connecting HOV lanes between State Route 16 and Interstate 5 are scheduled to begin installing a new sign bridge and thirty-six girders for new overpasses the week of Sept. 10. The work will require a series of overnight lane and ramp closures. Inclement weather could reschedule the work.

During the overnight closures, drivers will follow a signed detour.

Additional overnight single- and double-lane closures are scheduled for both directions of Interstate 5 between South 48th Street in Tacoma and 54th Avenue East in Fife, and on both directions of State Route 16 near South Sprague Avenue.
