WSDOT: Detour On SR 512 Starts Next Week

Drivers on westbound State Route 512 heading to southbound Interstate 5 in Lakewood should expect a detour one night next week.

From 10 p.m. Wednesday, July 2 through 4 a.m. Thursday, July 3, crews will close the westbound State Route 512 exit to southbound I-5. Drivers will follow a signed detour.

The closure will allow crews to install infrastructure to support “smart highway ” devices that help WSDOT manage traffic and relay roadway information to the public. The work is related to the I-5 – SR 510 to SR 512 Congestion Management project.

Drivers can check the latest roadway conditions with the Washington State Department of Transportation’s online travel tools such as the travel alerts webpages. Drivers can also download WSDOT’s mobile app .
