LAKEWOOD – Drivers who use the westbound State Route 512 exit to southbound Interstate 5 in Lakewood can expect possible overnight delays. The exit will close from 10 p.m. Monday, May 11, to 4 a.m. Tuesday, May 12.
Drivers will detour via the I-5 South 84th Street interchange.
The closure will allow crews to install data loops into the pavement for a new ramp meter. The loops gather data on traffic speeds and volumes, which in turn will help regulate the timing and cycles of the future ramp meter.
Drivers can get an advance look at area construction at the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Olympic Region Construction Update Report. Mobile phone users can get a lot of real-time information by downloading WSDOT’s mobile app. Driver updates are also available via Twitter and by calling 5-1-1.
