Overnight I-5 ramp, lane closures in Tacoma finish the month

0

Contractor crews finishing widening Interstate 5 for HOV lanes will continue to close lanes and ramps tonight through the weekend and next week near downtown Tacoma. Travelers should note that a single lane of the northbound I-5 collector/distributor between Yakima Avenue to the I-705 and State Route 7 split will close around-the-clock starting today through 4 a.m. Monday, Aug. 27.

The closures allow crews to pave, install striping, remove barrier and install guardrail.

In addition, contractor crews working for the City of Fife improving the Port of Tacoma Road interchange have a series of overnight ramp closures scheduled Aug. 28-30.

Overnight single- and double-lane closures are scheduled for both directions of I-5 between 48th Street and the Port of Tacoma Road, and on both directions of SR 16 near South Sprague Avenue. Additional information is available at TacomaTraffic.com.

Drivers are encouraged to plan extra time as they travel through the work zones. Signed detours will be in place for all ramp closures.
