Remember how horrible the freeway was last weekend? It’s happening again

Do you remember how jammed I-5 and even US-101 were last weekend, when two of the four lanes of NB I-5 near Pacific Avenue were closed for construction?

Well, it’s happening again this weekend…

Crews will create a work zone to rebuild a bridge approach slab and replace expansion joints. “This work is necessary to keep the highway in good working condition,” said WSDOT Project Engineer Brian Whitehouse. “We appreciate drivers planning ahead so we can make these repairs to fix a recurring maintenance issue.”

To help reduce weekend congestion on northbound I-5 approaching Lacey, WSDOT needs help from drivers.

  • Plan extra time for trips on I-5 in the south sound area.
  • Travel early before 9 a.m. or after 9 p.m.
  • Avoid using northbound I-5 from in town trips in Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater.

The lanes will close starting at 10pm on Friday and will reopen at 5am Monday morning.
