I-5 construction to begin soon

UW commuters who use I-5 should be aware of some upcoming repair work. Motorists can expect nightly lane closures in both directions of I-5 between Spokane Street and I-90 beginning July 9. Crews will install signs, locate unstable concrete on northbound lanes and repair southbound expansion joints.

Construction work on northbound I-5 between Spokane Street and I-90 will require around-the-clock lane closures between Aug. 10 and Aug. 29. Crews will close several lanes of northbound I-5, leaving only two or three lanes open to traffic.
