LAKEWOOD – Rain has delayed the reopening of the fourth lane of northbound Interstate 5 at Thorne Lane in Lakewood.
Last weekend, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation created a work zone along this segment of I-5 as part of a project to widen I-5. Crews had hoped to return the on-ramp to its previous condition this weekend, but weather is delaying that effort.
The contractor now hopes to have the add lane and on-ramp restored back to its previous condition by Wednesday, Oct. 23 or Thursday, Oct. 24, if the weather cooperates.
Overnight ramp closures:
Monday, Oct. 21 – Wednesday, Oct. 23
- Berkeley Street onramp to southbound I-5 will close each night from 9:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.
- Thorne Lane on-ramp to northbound I-5 will close each night from 8:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.
Thursday, Oct. 24
- 41st Division Drive on-ramp to southbound I-5 will close from 10 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. Friday.
- Thorne Lane on-ramp to northbound I-5 will close from 9:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. Friday.
Travelers are advised to watch their speed in work zones, stay alert and give construction crews room to work.
