WSDOT Paving on I-5 in Lakewood Continues

Construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will continue to repave sections of southbound Interstate 5 between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. from Tuesday, Sept. 2 through Saturday, Sept. 6. During those night hours, I-5 will be reduced to one lane in each direction, and several on- and off-ramps will be closed. Similar closures have caused significant congestion on I-5 and motorists are advised to avoid the area or plan accordingly.

Sections of I-5 will be ground and paved between Berkeley Street and just south of the JBLM Main Gate at milepost 120.3.

In addition, crews will continue to install conduit along I-5 between Berkeley Street and State Route 512. This work will require some single-lane and overnight ramp closures within the work zone. The following is the ramp closure schedule. Note that on Tuesday night, motorists will not be able to access either direction of I-5 from Berkeley Street.
