Roadway Striping: Lane & Ramp Closures In Pierce, Thurston Counties
OLYMPIA – The possibility of dry weather early next week will give crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation a chance to install pavement markings on Interstate 5 in Pierce and Thurston counties.
Beginning at 7 p.m. each night from Monday, Nov. 10 through Wednesday, Nov. 12, crews will close one lane of southbound I-5 followed by a second lane at 10 p.m. from Gravelly Lake Drive in Lakewood to Mounts Road in DuPont. Drivers should also expect short-duration on-and off-ramp closures on southbound I-5 from Gravelly Lake Drive to Mounts Road.
All lanes and ramps will re-open each following day by 5 a.m.
If the weather allows, crews will perform the same work in Thurston County on I-5 during the same overnight hours from Thursday, Nov. 13 through Sunday, Nov. 16.
Double lane closures and short-duration on- and off-ramp closures will take place on southbound I-5 from the State Capitol/City Center exit to Tumwater Boulevard. The same will occur on northbound I-5 from Tumwater Boulevard to Trosper Rd. SW. Drivers should also expect short-duration on-and off-ramp closures for the Tumwater Blvd. and Trosper Road interchanges with both northbound and southbound I-5.
This work is weather dependent. If it rains, the work will be rescheduled for a later date.
The work is related to the I-5 Vicinity Tumwater Boulevard to Gravelly Lake Drive – Paving project.
